Constitution 



NAME 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the West Chowan Baptist Association of 
North Carolina. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the churches connected with 
this body and all ordained ministers who are pastors of said churches, together with the 
officers of this Association, and chairmen of all standing committees. Each church of 
100 members and under shall be entitled to two messengers, and for each additional 100 
members, an additional messenger, provided that no church shall have more than 10 
messengers. 

PURPOSE 

Article 3. The purpose of this Association shall be to inspire, encourage, and enlist its 
membership in a spirit of brotherly love and cooperation, for the promotion of the en- 
tire program of our denomination; to the end that the gospel of our Lord and Saviour 
Jesus Christ might be proclaimed with greater power and effectiveness in our Associa- 
tion, our State and Nation, and unto the uttermost part of the world. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no powers to infringe upon the sovereignty or 
rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legislative council, nor a court of 
appeal. It may advise the churches and recommend measures of usefulness for their 
adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. There shall be full recognition of the auton- 
omy of the local church and there shall be full recognition of the autonomy of the Asso- 
ciation. However, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of the Associ- 
ation, it justly claims the very highest consideration and regard for itself, its objects and 
its recommendations. 

Article 5. Any Baptist church in good standing approving the design, objects and 
principles of this Association, and holding the same doctrine and ordinances, may be 
admitted into fellowship upon two-thirds vote of the messengers. All applications shall 
be referred to the Membership Committee for study. Churches desiring membership 
should give notice by making application one year in advance. 

Article 6. The Association may dissolve its relation with any church that consistently 
refuses to support the design, objects and principles of the West Chowan Baptist Associ- 
ation. Any irregularities which are reported shall be referred to the Membership Com- 
mittee who will report their finds to the Fall Associational meeting. The relationship 
may be dissolved by a two-thirds vote of the messengers one year after irregularities have 
been brought to the attention of the Association. 

RIGHTS AND DUTIES 

Article 7. Every church will be requested to contribute a percentage of its gifts, or so 
much per resident member for defraying the expenses of the Association and for direc- 
tion of the promotional education and missionary work of the Association. This per- 
centage or amount shall be sent to the Associational Treasurer monthly by each church 
treasurer. 



-25- 



Article 8. Every church will send to every annual session of the Association a letter on 
the form adopted by the Association with such additional information as it may deem 
fitting.

I. THE SCRIPTURES 

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is the record of God's reve- 
lation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its 
author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture or error, for its matter. It 
reveals the principles by which God judges us; and therefore is, and will remain to the 
end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which 
all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. The criterion by 
which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ. 

II. GOD 

There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and per- 
sonal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is in- 
finite in holiness and all other perfections. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, 
and obedience. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, 
with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being. 

A. God the Father 

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe. His creatures, and the 
flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all 
powerful, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children 
of God through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men. 

B. God the Son 

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, he was conceived 
of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will 
of God, taking upon Himself the demands and necessities of human nature and identi- 
fying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine law by 
His personal obedience, and in His death on the cross, He made provision for the re- 
demption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and ap- 
peared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He 
ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One 
Mediator, partaking of the nature of God and of man, and in whose Person is effected 
the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the 
world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the 
living and ever present Lord. 

C. God the Holy Spirit 

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He inspired holy men of old to write the Scrip- 
tures. Through illumination. He enables men to understand truth. He exalts Christ. He 
convicts of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. He calls men to the Saviour, and ef- 
fects regeneration. He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and bestows 
the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His church. He seals the believer un- 
to the day of final redemption. His presence in the Christian is the assurance of God to 
bring the believer into the fulness of the stature of Christ. He enlightens and empowers 
the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service. 



-30- 



III. MAN 



Man was created by the special act of God, in His own image, and is the crowning 
work of His creation. In the beginning, man was innocent of sin and was endowed by 
His Creator with freedom of choice. By his free choice, man sinned against God and 
brought sin into the human race. Through the temptation of Satan, man transgressed 
the command of God and fell from his original innocence; whereby his posterity inherit 
a nature and an environment inclined toward sin, and as soon as they are capable of 
moral action become transgressors and are under condemnation. Only the grace of God 
can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of 
God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His 
own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore, every man possesses dignity and 
is worthy of respect and Christian love. 

IV. SALVATION 

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who 
accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal re- 
demption for the believer. In its broadest sense, salvation includes regeneration, sanctifi- 
cation, and glorification. 

A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God's grace whereby believers become 
new creatures of Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart wrought by the Holy Spirit through 
conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in 
the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. Repentance is a genuine 
turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment 
of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Saviour. Justification is God's gracious and 
full acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who repent and believe 
in Christ. Justification brings the believer into a relationship of peace and favor with 
God. 

B. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is 
set apart to God's purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual per- 
fection through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in 
grace should continue throughout the regenerate person's life. 

C. Glorification is the culmination of salvation and is the final blessed and abiding 
state of the redeemed. 

V. GOD'S PURPOSE OF GRACE 

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, sanc- 
tifies, and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the free agency of man, and com- 
prehends all the means in connection with the end. It is glorious display of God's 
sovereign goodness, and is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable. It excludes boasting 
and promotes humility. 

All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and 
sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall preserve to 
the end. Believers may fall into sin and through neglect and temptation, whereby they 
grieve the Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, bring reproach on the cause of 
Christ, and temporal judgments on themselves, yet they shall be kept by the power of 
God through faith unto salvation. 



-31- 



VI. THE CHURCH 



A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized believ- 
ers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing 
the two ordinances of Christ, committed to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, 
and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the 
ends of the earth. 

This church is an autonomous body, operating through democratic processes under 
the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In such a congregation, members are equally responsible. 
Its Scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. 

The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of Christ which includes all 
of the redeemed of all the ages. 

VII. BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER 

Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, 
the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in 
a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old 
life, and resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is a testimony to his 
faith in the final resurrection of the dead. Being a church ordinance, it is prerequisite to 
the privileges of church membership and to the Lord's Supper. 

The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, 
through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the 
Redeemer and anticipate His second coming. 

VIII. THE LORD'S DAY 

The first day of the week is the Lord's Day. It is a Christian institution for regular ob- 
servance. It commemorates the resurrection of Christ from the dead and should be 
employed in exercises of worship and spiritual devotion, both public and private, and by 
refraining from worldly amusements, and resting from secular employments, work of 
necessity and mercy only being excepted. 

IX. THE KINGDOM 

The Kingdom of God includes both His general sovereignty over the universe and His 
particular kingship over men who willfully acknowledge Him as King. Particularly the 
Kingdom is the realm of salvation into which men enter by trustful, childlike commit- 
ment to Jesus Christ. Christians ought to pray and to labor that the Kingdom may come 
and God's will be done on earth. The full consummation of the Kingdom awaits the 
return of Jesus Christ and the end of this age. 

X. LAST THINGS 

God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world its appropriate end. 
According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the 
earth; the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The un- 
righteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous 
in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will dwell forever in 
Heaven with the Lord. 



-32- 



XI. EVANGELISM AND MISSIONS 

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord 
Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations. The new birth of man's spirit 
by God's Holy Spirit means the birth of love for others. Missionary effort on the part of 
all rests thus upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate life, and is expressly and 
repeatedly commanded in the teachings of Christ. It is the duty of every child of God to 
seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by personal effort and by all other methods in 
harmony with the gospel of Christ. 

XII. EDUCATION 

The cause of education in the Kingdom of Christ is to coordinate with the causes of 
missions and general benevolence, and should receive along with these, the liberal sup- 
port of the churches. An adequate system of Christian schools is necessary to a complete 
spiritual program for Christ's people. 

In Christian education, there should be a proper balance between academic freedom 
and academic responsibility. Freedom in any orderly relationship of human life is al- 
ways limited and never absolute. The freedom of a teacher in a Christian school, college, 
or seminary is limited by the preeminence of Jesus Christ, by the authoritative nature of 
the Scripture, and by the distinct purpose for which the school exists. 

XIII. STEWARDSHIP 

God is the source of all blessings, temporal and spiritual; all that we have and are, we 
owe to Him. Christians have a spiritual debtorship to the whole world, a holy trustee- 
ship in the gospel, and a binding stewardship in their possessions. They are therefore 
under the obligation to serve Him with their time, talents, and material possessions; and 
should recognize all these as entrusted to them to use for the glory of God and for help- 
ing others. According to the Scriptures, Christians should contribute of their means 
cheerfully, regularly, systematically, proportionately, and liberally for the advancement 
of the Redeemer's cause on earth. 

XIV. COOPERATION 

Christ's people should, as occasion requires, organize such associations and conven- 
tions as may best secure cooperation for the great objects of the Kingdom of God. Such 
organizations have no authority over one another or over the churches. They are volun- 
tary and advisory bodies designed to elicit, combine, and direct the energies of our peo- 
ple in the most effective manner. Members of New Testament churches should 
cooperate with one another in carrying forward the missionary, educational, and benev- 
olent ministries for the extension of Christ's Kingdom. Christian unity in the New Testa- 
ment sense is spiritual harmony and voluntary cooperation for common ends by various 
groups of Christ's people. Cooperation is desirable between the various Christian de- 
nominations, when the end to be attained is itself justified, and when such cooperation 
involves no violation of conscience or compromise of loyalty to Christ and His Word as 
revealed in the New Testament. 



-33- 



XV. THE CHRISTIAN AND THE SOCIAL ORDER 

Every Christian is under obligation to seek to make the will of Christ supreme in his 
own life and in human society. Means and methods used for the improvement of society 
and the establishment of righteousness among men can be truly and permanently helpful 
only when they are rooted in the regeneration of the individual by the saving grace of 
God in Christ Jesus. The Christian should oppose in the spirit of Christ every form of 
greed, selfishness, and vice. He should work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the 
aged, the helpless, and the sick. Every Christian should seek to bring industry, govern- 
ment, and society as a whole under the sway of the principles of righteousness, truth, 
and brotherly love. In order to promote these ends. Christians should be ready to work 
with all men of good will in any good cause, always being careful to act in the spirit of 
love without compromising their loyalty to Christ and His truth. 

XVI. PEACE AND WAR 

It is the duty of Christians to seek peace with all men on principles of righteousness. 
In accordance with the spirit and teachings of Christ, they should do all in their power to 
put an end to war. 

The true remedy for the war spirit is the gospel of our Lord. The supreme need of the 
world is the acceptance of His teachings in all the affairs of men and nations, and the 
practical application of His law of love. 

XVII. RELIGIOUS LIBERTY 

God alone is Lord of the conscience, and He has left it free from the doctrines and 
commandments of men which are contrary to His Word or not contained in it. Church 
and state should be separate. The state owes to every church protection and full freedom 
in the pursuit of its spiritual ends. In providing for such freedom, no ecclesiastical group 
or denomination should be favored by the state more than others. Civil government be- 
ing ordained of God, it is the duty of Christians to render loyal obedience thereto in all 
things not contrary to the revealed will of God. The church should not resort to the civil 
power to carry on its work. The gospel of Christ contemplates spiritual means alone for 
the pursuit of its ends. The state has no right to impose penalties for religious opinions 
of any kind. The state has no right to impose taxes for the support of any form of 
religion. A free church in a free state is the Christian ideal, and this implies the right of 
free and unhindered access to God on the part of all men, and the right to form and 
propagate opinions in the sphere of religion without interference by the civil power.

gation to be much in prayer because we are living in a changing society. He had 
been reading some of the predictions for the future for the next few years and 
it was mind bogghng what was being said. Some of the things that were said

cial music for the evening session. 

22. Mr. Bob Watson, Director of Church Extension of the Baptist State Convention 
brought the evening message. He told the congregation that we had to get back 
to the basics and to remember where we started and how we started. Some years 
ago, some of the Southern Baptist leaders thought we were too sophisticated to 
use the basics that we started with, so they discarded them and another denomi- 
nation picked them up and began to use them. Now they are growing, so we 
have to get back to the basics of teaching the Bible and showing the lost that 
we care for them because 51.8^^0 of the people are not churched. 

23. There were a total of 166 present at the meeting. 

24. The closing hymn "O Master, Let Me Walk With Thee" was sung by the con-

History of Mars Hill Baptist Church: 1854-1991 



In a little village near what is now Trap, in Bertie County, the people met in a 
school house about one half mile from the present site of Mars Hill Baptist Church. 
That 1853 prayer meeting lasted twelve days. When the meeting closed, there were 
thirty-two professions of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Rev. John Nowell was invit- 
ed to come and administer the ordinance of baptism, which took place at the Cho- 
wan River, From that humble beginning arose the desire to have a local church 
fellowship. 

The people in the immediate area, members of Colerain Baptist Church, living some 
distance from their church, felt the need for, and saw the possibilities for, a new 
church. Meeting together, agreement was made and they proceeded to organize Mars 
Hill Baptist Church September 29, 1854. After a message by Elder James Delk from 
Isaiah 7:25, eighteen letters of dismission were received from Colerain Baptist Church 
and the new organization was begun. 

The first order of business for the newly organized church was the adoption of 
rules of Decorum and a Covenant of Faith. Later that year. Rev. B.B. WilHams was 
called as pastor of the church and duly ordained to the full work of the ministry. 

Rev. Williams served the church as pastor until the Civil War. He left to serve 
as Chaplain in the southern Army. Most of the men from the community were gone 
and the church was unable to continue regular services. This difficult time left the 
church disorganized and torn asunder. 

Soon after the war was over, February 1866, the people of the community met 
again to reorganize the church, that it might once again work in peace, union, and 
fellowship. Rev. B.B. Williams, among others, returned to help with the reorganiza- 
tion. The roll was called and ninety were received, thirty-one men and fifty-nine wom- 
en, as being in full fellowship with the church. Rev. Williams accepted the pastorate 
in January 1867, serving until 1874. 

Two pastors served the next six years. Unable to secure a pastor, the pastor from 
Harrellsville supplied for a few months in 1883. A pastor was called in August 1883. 
The church was once again stable and growing. 

Difficult times came again when a fierce winter storm tore through the Trap com- 
munity February 16, 1903, severely damaging the Mars Hill Baptist Church Build- 

-38- 



ing. As soon as possible a committee was appointed to assess the damage. Meanwhile 
services were held at the Perry Schoolhouse. The committee reported that the build- 
ing could be temporarily repaired, but a new structure would have to take its place. 
Dedication for the new Mars Hill Baptist Church building took place September 29, 
1904, just fifty years after the church was organized. 

Uninterrupted service was provided to the community through Mars Hill Church 
for the next thirty-six years. 

Hardship came again June 26, 1940. It is believed that some painting supplies spon- 
taneously ignited to set the building aflame. The building was burned beyond repair. 
The membership elected to build a new church of modern design with brick veneer. 
Though the fire was tragic and thorough, it served to unite the church and communi- 
ty. Much of the material and labor for the new structure was donated. With the spirit 
of loyalty and cooperation the present building was finished and dedicated at a cost 
of eighteen thousand dollars. 

In the years that followed several additions to the church property have been made. 
A new parsonage, built in 1960 added to the comfort of the pastors who have served 
the church and community. By the Spring of 1976 two class rooms and the fellow- 
ship hall, with kitchen and rest rooms were completed and dedicated. More recently, 
sacrificial gifts and memorial offerings have been used to buy a new organ and piano. 
Heating and air conditioning have been upgraded for more efficient service. 

Each year we strive for continued outreach in our community as well as adding 
to our commitment to support missionary activities at home and around the world. 



Bethany Baptist Church became a reality following the August, 1881, revival which 
was held in the old Perry's Cross schoolhouse by the Rev. Josephus Lynch, who be- 
came Bethany's first pastor. Freeman Perry donated the land which housed the con- 
gregation of Bethany. The church structure, which was begun in 1882, was completed 
in 1883. The Rev. W.P. Jordan was Bethany's pastor at the time the building was 
dedicatd in 1884. 

Under the leadership of the Rev. George Leggett, three extra rooms were added 
to the front of the church structure at a cost of $3,500.00 in 1922. During the Rev. 
K.E. Bryant's pastorate in 1935, six additional classrooms were built onto the back 
of the structure. In 1936, the pastor's salary was raised to $400.00 a year. 

In October, 1947, Bethany and Ross entered the field of joint-pastoring. The Rev. 
Roy Young was called as the pastor in February, 1948. 

One acre of land was purchased from Mrs. Lottie Cofield in November, 1950, for 
the parsonage. Almost thirty-one (3 1 ) years later, in July, 1 98 1 , the church parsonage 
was completed and it was dedicated on October 25, 1981, Bethany's centennial. 

In January, 1980, Ross Baptist Church decided that their church needed a full- 
time pastor. At that time, Bethany and Capeharts entered a joint-pastorate field. On

(19) the church began sponsoring the radio program "The Baptist Hour" on WDRP 
in 1991; and (20) Bethany's mission support for the last two years added together 
exceeded Bethany's total 1980 receipts. "To God be the glory for the things He has 
done." 

Our prayer and desire is that God will continue to bless us as we labor in His serv- 
ice. In His infinite wisdom and mercy, God has seen fit to bless and use Bethany 
in the past. We believe that even greater days are ahead for Bethany as we keep our 
eyes upon Him and do His blessed will. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rev. Tommy Tripp, Pastor 
Venell Byrum, Belva Cale, and 
Nadine Hewitt, History Committee

History of Conway Baptist Church 



In the year of 1905, a group of Baptist church members who were attending Robert's 
Chapel, Potecasi and Murfreesboro deemed it proper that a local Baptist church 
should be organized in the community of Conway. 

On August 26th, of the same year, a group of thirty men and three women met 
in the public school, which was located on the present church lot, to consider the 
wisdom of such a step. A committee was appointed to contact those of the Baptist 
faith to see how many would be interested in joining a local church, if one was started. 

On September 2nd, the committee reported that 108 people were willing to join 
the new church and on October 8, 1905, a group of Baptists, in the vicinity of Con- 
way, met in the schoolhouse and organized a Baptist church. There were 76 who 
presented letters and became chartered members of the church. Rev. C.W. Schar- 
boro was called to be the first Pastor. Within two years, from the time the church 
was organized, they built their first House of Worship on a large lot given by Mr. 
Abner Lassiter, grandfather of the present Abner P. Lassiter. During the next three 
years, with help from sister churches, Conway Baptist was able to pay the indebted- 
ness of its church. The church had the wisdom to purchase the adjoining school- 
house lot for future growth. 

In May 1941, the Reverend Lonnie Sasser was called as pastor and during the fol- 
lowing three years the membership grew, money became easier to come by and the 
church soon discovered it needed more Sunday School space. A Church Conference 
was called and a motion was made to start a building fund and ask all members to 
contribute. 

On May 18, 1949, the new church building was started. On August 13, 1950, the 
members met for the first time in the new brick church of early colonial style, carpet- 
ed and furnished. Through faithful giving the indebtedness of the church was liqui- 
dated in December 1952. 



-45- 



Before Rev. Sasser resigned he led the church in the project of purchasing a lot 
and erecting a parsonage. The Rev. Donald J. Dunlap was the first minister to oc- 
cupy the parsonage. 

Plans were adopted to build a separate building with covered walkway. The new 
building was begun in 1985 and was completed in 1986 at a total cost of $265,000.00. 
This debt was retired in 1989. 

Women were elected to serve on the board of deacons in 1985. 

Our church was incorporated September 9, 1990. 

Ministers ordained by Conway Baptist Church to preach the gospel were R. Kelly 
White and Paul Sykes in July 1917, and Benny Pledger on July 13, 1950. 

Many people in the past have contributed to the growth of our church by giving 
generously of their time, talents and tithes. Those examples are faithfully followed 
by our young adults who are assuming roles of leadership and responsibility for the 
future of Conway Baptist Church. From a meager beginning budget in 1940 of 
$2,337.00 our budget has increased to $149,941.00 for 1991-92. 

Conway Baptist Church is a mission minded church. We support the Cooperative 
Program, and our Home and Foreign Missions. 

Rev. James E. Hester has been our Pastor for the last thirteen years. Our church 
has grown physically and spiritually under his leadership. 



Roberts Chapel Baptist Church of Pendleton was organized in October, 1848 un- 
der the auspices of church leaders from Meherrin and Potecasi, many of whom as- 
sisted in the establishment of Chowan College that same year. 

There had been an interdenominational group of worshippers, of both races, from 
southern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina who had been meeting in a small 
building served by home missionaries and travehng ministers of various faiths. Even- 
tually those of the Baptist faith outnumbered the others. From this nucleus, thirty 
became charter members of the new church, established under the name of Roberts 
Chapel Baptist Church. The congregation began to grow until more than 500 were 
enrolled. In 1873 the church obtained a government grant giving it full possession 
and ownership of the building and grounds. Members then began work toward a 
new building and more land. Adjoining land was donated and members began select- 
ing, cutting, dressing, and hauling lumber from their own forests to the church 
grounds. Withstanding the rigors of a civil war, they were able to construct and dedi- 
cate the new and larger building in 1871. The first two "Infant Classrooms" were 
added in 1888, thus becoming the first Sunday School classrooms in the association. 
This building was destroyed by fire on Sunday, December 14, 1924 and a new modern 
brick sanctuary was completed in 1927 in the heart of Pendleton, while the old loca- 
tion on the outskirts of the community became the church cemetery.

History of Robert's Chapel Baptist Church 



-46- 



Five months after its establishment the church petitioned for membership in the 
Chowan Association; it sent delegates to the Chowan Union Meeting held in Poteca- 
si in 1850; and it was received as a member of the Bertie Union Meeting in 1850. 
Later in 1883, this church assisted in the formation of a new association, the West 
Chowan, Roberts Chapel being the fourth oldest member from Northampton County. 

The church has given scholarships and supported Chowan College, assisted Wake 
Forest College as early as 1882, helped financially with the Thomasville Orphanage, 
and gave its first ordained minister, Jess Boone, in 1861 to pastor the orphanage. 

The following Baptist churches have been formed from this congregation or been 
helped financially and spiritually in their establishments: Corinth in 1855, Jackson 
in 1876, Severn in 1896, Woodland in 1904, a church house on Roanoke Island in 
1905, Conway in 1905, and Ashleys Grove in 1909. 

The church has ordained five men for the Christian ministry: Jess Boone, 1860; 
Robert D. Stephenson, 1905; Jack Barnes, 1907; Bailey Jones, 1940; and H.C. Low- 
der, around 1930. 

From 1886 until 1932 Roberts Chapel was in partnership with Como Baptist Church. 
After that date Roberts Chapel Church shared pastors with neighboring churches, 
until 1953. In the fall of 1953, the decision was made to go to full-time ministry and 
build a home for the pastor. In January, 1954, the church called Randolph Phillips, 
a student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, as the first full-time pastor 
and the first student pastor. The pastor moved into the new parsonage May 1, 1954. 

Since Roberts Chapel Church became full-time, a number of things have been done 
to enhance the ministry and promote spiritual growth and worship, as well as spiritual 
and social fellowship. These things include the addition of much needed children's 
class rooms and nursery facilities, and a social hall with kitchen. The sanctuary has 
been completely renovated, adding to its beauty and worshipfulness, as well as im- 
proving the acoustics. A beautiful lighted steeple was given by the G.E. Fisher fami- 
ly and chimes were given by Mr. and Mrs. John Glover in memory of their 
daughter-in-law's father, Wilham D. Edwards. Recently, Emma Gay Stephenson 
provided the funds for complete landscaping of the church grounds.

History of First Baptist Church, Ahoskie 



In the midst of a great movement of revivalism and evangelism and the beginnings 
of modern missions, a mission of the Meherrin Baptist Church was begun in 1803 
in the area later to be known as the Town of Ahoskie. C.W. Mitchell, historian of 
the Chowan Association, called it "the most fertile section of eastern North CaroH- 
na." A year later, in 1804, First Baptist Church of Ahoskie was organized with sixty- 
seven members, with Hillary Morris of Meherrin as the first pastor. 

In 1805, the Church was received into the Kehukee Association and a year later 
was one of the eighteen churches that formed the Chowan Association. In 1883, the 
church was again one of eighteen churches that formed the West Chowan Baptist 
Association. In 1899, the West Chowan Baptist Association met at First Baptist 
Church for the fourth time and the Recorder reported 2,500-3,000 messengers and 
visitors present. 

First Baptist Church has been led by only twenty-two pastors in 187 years. One 
pastor. Dr. John Mitchell, served as pastor on two occasions. The late Reverend Os- 
car Creech had the longest pastorate, twenty-six years (1925-1951). Pastors follow- 
ing Mr. Creech in the last half of the twentieth century have been William Milne, 
Isaac Terrell, Billy T. Mobley and James Langford. The present pastor, Jesse J. 
Croom, assumed pastoral responsibilities on January 1, 1991. 

Staff members have also contributed greatly to the Hfe and work of First Baptist 
Church. Among them, the following have served notably: Miss Josephine Hair, Mr. 
and Mrs. L.C. Pinnix, John Fischer, Adrian Littlejohn, Bob Dills and Wm. Don 
Gober. 

Having been birthed out of revivalism and evangelism. First Baptist Church has 
been fortunate to nurture a number of young people who have responded to God's 
call and are serving in Christian vocations. David Leary, Dennis Bazemore, and Rob- 
bie Parker have had fruitful ministries as pastors. Jim Hyatt, Garner Keel, Leah Wig- 
gins Stubbs, and Anita Thompson have served as Ministers of Music. L.K. Godwin, 
Jr., is ministering in denominational work. In 1991, a number of young people are 
preparing themselves for Christian ministries. 

-48- 



Growing to maturity during the modern missions movement, First Baptist Church 
has had a commendable record in supporting associational, state, home and foreign 
missions. The vision of the Church is to continue sharing Christ in this "most fertile 
section of eastern North Carolina" and to the ends of the earth. 



Most of the people in the small community of Union in the late nineteenth century 
were Methodists. The Baptists were few in number and therefore they worshipped 
with the Methodists. 

In the Spring of 1885 a group of Baptist men met in an old school house on Liver- 
man Mill Road and organized a Baptist Church. The first recorded conference of 
this church was held the first Sunday in May, 1885. At this first conference it was 
decided that the church would be called Union Baptist Church for the village where 
the church was located. Also it was decided that the Reverend John Mitchell was 
to be called as the first pastor. 

At the next called business meeting a committee was appointed to find and pur- 
chase a lot for a church building. The land was purchased from George W. Wynn 
for the sum of $49.00. Church members gave lumber and other building materials 
needed for the church building. In August, 1891, the church building was completed 
debt free. On October, 1891 the new building was dedicated. Dr. A.E. Owens preached 
the dedicatory sermon. 

Over the years Union Baptist has been actively involved in the Southern Baptist 
Convention. One of the notable accomplishments has been the church's dedication 
to missions - state, home, and foreign missions. In 1898 a Women's Missionary Un- 
ion was formed and this has been the back bone of the mission's outreach of the 
church. Women have played a vital role in the establishment of this church and also 
have had considerable influence on its spiritual growth. 

The church has been very active in this century with the West Chowan Baptist As- 
sociation. Members of Union Baptist Church have played key roles in the success 
of this fine organization. A number of members of this church have served as direc- 
tors of associational program and outreaches. 

Union Baptist Church has sent out from its membership one missionary, three pas- 
tors, and one associational worker. At the same time scores of lay workers have been 
raised up to carry on the work of the local church. 

In 1952, the church voted to build a parsonage. In 1964, a dedicatory service was 
held and the note was burned. In 1979, the church voted to call the Reverend Tho- 
mas Hayes as its first full-time pastor. 

Under the leadership of Reverend Hayes, an educational building was started. The 
building provided the church with five classrooms, additional restrooms, a pastor's 
study, kitchen, and fellowship hall. This building was dedicated to the memory of 
J.L. Darden, Sr. 

Since the church was organized in 1885, thirty-seven pastors have served the church. 
Throughout the years there have been many changes - most of which have been record- 
ed. What has not been recorded is the dedication, the love of God and man, and 
the -service of many Godly people.

I want to thank the Lord for a good year. We have been busy with many good 



things taking place. Also, I want to say thanks to all of the Directors of our Pro- 
grams and Committee Chairmen and members of all committees for their help. To 
all the churches for their prayers and financial support. We could not have done it 
without you. We are moving on towards our goals and looking for greater things 
in the New Year. My prayers go out for you and to you. Keep up the good work. 

Lonnie R. Armstrong, 
Director of Missions 

Executive Promotion Committee Report 

The Executive Promotion Committee met four times during the associational year. 
Each organizational director and committee chairman was given an opportunity to 
give a report and promote their work.

to the resignation of Rev. Gerald Riggs, who moved to Rocky Mount. 

Some of the highlights in the association this year were: 

1. Adopted an annuity of $600 in assistance to one retired minister from NC. 

2. Good cooperation from churches for commitments to host and co-host meet- 
ings through 1995. 

3. Seminary Extension classes at Odom Prison with eight out of twelve completing 
the course. 

4. Observed Associational Emphasis Week, May 19-26, 1991 . A week of prayer and 
open house on Sunday, May 19 at the Association office.

7. Designated June 6 - August 16, 1992 to use an Apostoloi Team that is put together 
and trained by the Youth and Campus Ministries Department of BSC. 

8. Designated March 14-21, 1993 as the week for World Missions Conference. 

9. Adopted the 1991-1992 association budget. 

The association has been very busy this year and under the leadership of the Direc- 
tor of Missions, committees and the churches, a lot of good things have been accom- 
plished and we give our Lord all the praise and glory for it. 

Mr. Floyd Barmer 
Associational Clerk 



Missions Development 

The Missions Development Council is composed of a director, representatives of 
Sunday School, Woman's Missionary Union, and Brotherhood, and the directors 
of the component programs which this year have included these ministries: Ethnics, 
Disaster Relief, Senior Adults, Student Summer Missions, and Church Extension. 
Other missions ministries are being considered for next year or some future time. 

Corene Harris has been working in the area of ministry among ethnics. She ac- 
cepted an invitation to teach the Baptist doctrine study book. Hearers and Doers, 
The Doctrine of the Laity, at Bethlehem Baptist Church of Seaboard. This summer, 
working in cooperation with Galatia Baptist Church and Bethlehem Baptist Church, 
a one day Vacation Bible School was organized and carried out in a housing project 
in Seaboard resulting in 14 professions of faith, including two young men ages 20 
and 21. Mrs. Harris presented a program on foreign missions and on her mission 
trips to Africa at a missions meeting at a Black Baptist Church in Margarettsville. 
Baptist Sunday School Board materials and WMU materials were provided for a youth 
worker in Murfreesboro. 

Disaster Relief Ministry has had a strong beginning in our association this year. 
There were 19 from our association representing 5 churches who attended the train- 
ing session in May at Camp Caraway and organized our Disaster Relief Team. Our 
team works in cooperation with the Disaster Relief Ministry of the North Carolina 
Baptist Men. We have had three additional training sessions since May, at Wilming- 
ton, at the Associational office, and at Cool Spring Baptist Church, to sharpen our 
skills in using the Disaster Relief Unit, which is primarily a feeding unit capable of 
preparing up to 3,000 meals per day. The team showed the Unit in Ahoskie at the 
Associational Missions Fair, at Galatia Church, and at Winton Church, The Disaster 
Relief Team trains to be ready to respond to disasters when the feeding unit is called 
for, with the hope and prayer that we will never be needed. The West Chowan team 
has been alerted two times this year to prepare to go but we were not called. Addi- 
tional volunteers are welcome on the team. 

A Senior Adult Ministry was begun with a rally on June 22 at Edgewood Baptist 
Church. Entertainment was provided by Dan Graves, Tempie Wood, Stephen Moore, 
and Kimbo the Clown. We had a time of singing and special music was provided. 
An inspirational devotional was given by Andy Wood. Thanks to Edgewood Baptist 
Church for the use of their facilities and for volunteers who prepared lunch for us. 
A good time was had by all who attended and we are looking forward to our next rally.

Missions Development worked in cooperation with the Church Extension Depart- 
ment of the Baptist State Convention to have Miss Kim Piland, a native of Cofield 
and a student at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, to work in West Cho- 
wan Association this past summer as student summer missionary to assist our churches 
in ministry with children, youth, and adults, particularly in the areas of Vacation 
Bible School and Backyard Bible Clubs. Miss Piland worked in Tunis, Winton, 
Robert's Chapel, Music Day Camp, Union, Menola, Center Grove, and Powells- 
ville. Her activities included five Backyard Bible Clubs, three Vacation Bible Schools, 
one senior adult rally, one music day camp, several children's sermons, one lock-in, 
several visits by Kimbo the Clown, door-to-door visitation, and other activities. Our 
thanks to the Baptist State Convention Church Extension Department for their as- 
sistance in this project. 

Missions Development has been concerned with the lack of growth and the decline 
of our churches. This concern led to the invitation to Bob Watson of the Church 
Extension Department of the Convention to come to West Chowan Association to 
present his proposal for a pilot project of PACT Studies for Long Range Planning 
and Shaping the Future of our churches, a project which will begin next year in several 
of our churches.

RA Report 

We had a very successful year in RAs. We had RA Week, November 5-11. All 
churches were asked to participate and on November 10 we had an RA Rally at Ross 
Baptist Church in Bertie County. There were 48 boys and leaders in attendance. During 
RA Week there was a film shown at the associational office entitled "RAs Go To 
Camp." 

December 1 we attempted to have a World Walk for Foreign Missions. It was rained 
out. 

In April we had RA Field Day. It was very well attended by many of our churches. 
Ribbons and certificates were given to each one participating. Refreshments were 
furnished. 

In the spring we tried to have a Home Mission World Walk. It was rained out. 

We have talked with several churches concerning RAs. If you have any boys in 
your church that are not in an active program, why not call me and lets get RAs started. 

Thank you for all your support this year. Be sure to look at the calendar for next 
year and plan to take part in RA activities. You won't regret it.

Associational RA Director

Stewardship Development Committee Report 



The Stewardship Development Committee gives thanks to all our churches for their 
gifts to the West Chowan Baptist Association for the year 1990-91. It has been your 
support that has made this year a good one. 

This committee has worked hard with the emphasis in May of Associational Em- 
phasis Week and the theme "Our Roots Go Deep." A tree planting ceremony was 
held on May 19, 1991 to begin the week of prayer for West Chowan. 

This committee worked on the new budget for 1991-92 and presented it to the Coun- 
cil and Executive Promotional Committee and was adopted. The total is $75,402.45 

The Associational Stewardship Program Budget must be viewed as one of primary 
importance. Success in an associational stewardship program budget calls for this 
high view of stewardship and its relationship to others. 

Thank you again for your fine work, concern and support of West Chowan Bap- 
tist Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Ronald W. McSwain, 
Director 



Seminary Extension 

Some good things are happening with Seminary Extension, and we anticipate a 
more active center in the year to come. 

The first SE Course was conducted at Odom Prison by Chaplain Craig Stevens. 
Twelve students began the course. Two were transferred, and eight successfully com- 
pleted the course, "Understanding the Bible." The details were handled by the as- 
sociational office, and in conjunction with the state office. Reimbursement has been 
obtained from the state convention. 

Two courses are being proposed for the New Associational year at Odom. 

Your Seminary Extension Director attended the Key Leadership Conference, and 
learned much about what is involved in this educational opportunity. Subsequently, 
we participated in the Mission Fair on May 19 during Associational Emphasis Week. 
Also, a survey has been made to ascertain which courses are of greatest interest to 
pastors and others. The most interest revolved around two courses: Family Life To- 
day and Church Growth. There is also interest in a music ministry course — i.e. Lead- 
ing a Music Ministry in a Small Church. 

It now appears that the three above courses: Family Life Today, Church Growth, 
and Leading a Music Ministry in a Small Church, will be scheduled to begin in either 
January or February of 1992. Watch the Associational News Letter for more infor- 
mation, and watch your mail. Please help promote the participation of those who 
would benefit most from these courses. 

Seminary Extension Courses can stimulate pastors and lay people, infuse life into 
our churches, and strengthen our fellowship. When the courses are offered, we hope 
you will take advantage of this excellent educational opportunity. 

Your Seminary Extension Committee

WMU Annual Report 1991 



EMPOWERED! Our theme for the year! 

Women's Missionary Union, WMU, of the West Chowan Baptist Association ex- 
ists to teach churches about missions so they will become more involved in missions 
at home and around the world through active ministry of prayer for and financial 
support of missions. The work of the WMU is directed by the associational council, 
which is composed of 17 members that represent each county in our association. We 
have had a wonderful year learning to use the empowered spirit we have received 
from the Lord, and sharing this empoweredness with the people of West Chowan 
Baptist Association. 

Our year began with an annual planning session followed by a state-wide training 
conference at Caswell. Leadership training sessions, for all age levels and directors, 
were held at Aulander and Creech in September. The church year has been full of 
opportunities to learn about missions and to serve the Lord through mission action. 
These opportunities included the following: Acteens Council, GA Fun Day, Wom- 
en's World Day of Prayer at Ahoskie, BYW Prayer Retreat, Missions Friends Train- 
ing, Mission Action Fair, Acteen International Friendship Tea, age level study courses 
and book studies, home and foreign mission studies, age level banquets and recogni- 
tion services, the state WMU Annual Meeting in Winston-Salem, Associational WMU 
Annual Meeting at Askewville, BW's trip to Cary, WMU Focus Week, day and over- 
night GA camps, Associational Emphasis Week Open House, Odom Prison Christ- 
mas project. Women's Correctional Center Christmas project. Hospice, food pantry, 
and SAFE projects, and Mission Support prayer activities. Based on the achievement 
guide, there were nine churches that qualified for the distinguished award and one 
church for the standard award. Our assocation was distinguished. 

If we are to continue to be empowered, we must continue to grow. The Enlist- 
ment/Enlargement Banquet held at Chowan College encouraged churches to increase 
WMU membership. The BW and BYW did a terrific job in planning this standing 
room only activity. Another successful activity was the Home Mission Study, held 
in each county, that reached over 40 churches. Your WMU Council has been a hard 
working group of wonderful Christian women. I would like to say THANK YOU 
to these women for all the hard work that has gone into making this such a success- 
ful year. 

At the annual meeting our director, Doris Riggs, announced that she and her hus- 
band were moving to Rocky Mount. Our association will greatly miss this Christian 
family. 

This has truly been an inspiring year as all the council members have learned to 
use the power that is ours through the Holy Spirit. We ask for your prayers as we 
continue to work for the Lord. My prayer is that all of us realize the empowered 
spirit we already have and to use that power to spread the work of Christ for we 
are "labourers together for God." 

Empowered through the Holy Spirit, 
' MeHnda M. Harris, WMU Director 

Wanda McEntire, Asst. WMU Director

Sunday School 



Sunday School has had a good year I feel. We are striving for an increase still. 
Our ASSISTeam went to Gary in February for training. We thank you for allowing 
us to go on behalf of West Chowan. Some of us have taught conferences in other 
associations as well as our own. Sept. 10th we had our S.S. Leadership Conference 
at Ahoskie First. Our VBS Director and her team have done a great job. I hope all 
reports are in by now. We need to reach more people for Bible Study. I need to thank 
the ASSISTeam for all their help and support this year. I thank you for allowing 
me to serve and I thank God for allowing me to serve Him. 

Over and over God has broken through and spoken to men and women through 
His word. As we enter into the second year of BREAKTHROUGH may God's word 
break through to His people. We need a fresh commitment to Bible Study and Pray- 
er, a renewed commitment to Hve out the Christian life. Sunday School is at the very 
heart of BREAKTHROUGH - Teach the Bible to Win. There must be a strong and 
continuing commitment to reach, enroll and teach the Bible to win the lost. 

The greatest BREAKTHROUGH is yet to come. It will not come through any- 
thing you or I plan and do, but it will come as a result of the Holy Spirit working 
in our lives. Looking forward to a great and exciting year as we Teach the Bible to 
Win (Souls). 

Ruth Miller, 
Director

Report of the Ordination Committee 

The Ordination Committee of the West Chowan Baptist Association met on three 
occasions for the purpose of examining candidates for the Christian ministry. 

On December 1, 1990, at the request of the Kelford Baptist Church the Committee 
met with Russell C. Rhodes who was serving as minister to the church. 

On June 30, 1991, the Committee met, at ihe request of Galatia Baptist Church, 
to examine Hugh Patterson, Minister of Music at Galatia. 

On September 19, 1991, at the request of the Elm Grove Baptist Church, the Com- 
mittee met with their new pastor, Mark Chase. 

In each instance the Committee questioned the candidate's call, education, gifts 
for ministry, and theological convictions. 

At the conclusion of the questioning it was unanimously agreed that the candi- 
dates were "set for the defense of the gospel" and the Committee therefore recom- 
mended them for ordination. 

Respectfully submitted.

Evangelism 



It is with mixed emotions that I write the Evangehsm Committee's report. After 
only three months into the new Associational year the committee had the misfortune 
of losing three of its six members to churches in other Associations. The committee's 
loss of manpower and expertise directly effected the accomplishment of its goals. 

However, during the past year the Evangelism Committee was able to promote 
a two-pronged approach to evangelism: education and motivation. The committee, 
in cooperation with the Associational Sunday School Director, planned two book 
studies. On October 16th and 18th the book study, "Evangelism Through the Sun- 
day School" was held at Union Baptist Church. The second book study was held 
at Aulander Baptist Church, January 29th and 31st, entitled "Every Christian's Job." 
Both studies had an average attendance of 23 and 15 respectively. 

Also, on January 18th a prayer retreat was held for the upcoming Spring Revivals. 
Aulander, Cashie, Creech Memorial, Galatia and Meherrin Baptist Churches each 
were host churches for their area of the Association. These Prayer Retreats were in 
preparation for the Witness-Giving Life Revivals. Many churches from the Associa- 
tion participated in the Witness-Giving Life Revivals and book studies. 

"Witness," the college age singing group sponsored by the Evangelism Depart- 
ment of the North Carolina Baptist State Convention, performed a concert at Au- 
lander Baptist Church. Over three hundred youth and adults were in attendance, 
representing 26 churches from the Association. 

The committee is hard at work planning events for the upcoming year. Mark your 
calendar to attend the following: 

February 2, 1992 - Evangelistic Rally, Chowan College, 7 PM 

Reverend Robert Hamblin will be the speaker. ~ 

February 22, 1992 - Lay Evangehsm School, 9 AM - 3 PM 

Spring 1992 - Youth Evangelistic Rally 

Summer 1992 - "Witness" Concert 

Fall 1992 - Associational Wide Evangelistic Crusade 

Churches are encouraged to plan to participate in these events and to offer sugges- 
tion of ways this committee can better serve the churches of the Association. Other 
activities will be planned to aid church leaders in preparing for revival. Take advan- 
tage of these opportunities to pray together, plan together and learn from each other 
as we commit ourselves to the joyous task of introducing others to our Lord and 
Saviour, Jesus Christ. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
Robbie Best 
Director of Evangelism 

Committee on Family and Christian Social Ministries 

We the members of the Committee on Family and Christian Social Ministries recog- 
nize the work being done by the Churches of the West Chowan Baptist Association 
and wish to highlight several concerns that sought our hearing. . . 

We applaud the work being done with families in economic distress and en- 
courage each local church to address this continuing need to respond to emer- 
gency assistance calls.

We appreciate the heavy burden of rising medication costs and are concerned 
for those individuals on fixed incomes that must make difficult decisions when 
they have insufficient resources to purchase needed medications and wish to 
encourage more of our churches to recognize this opportunity for ministry. 
We are thankful for the ministry to abused families that is being provided by 
S.A.F.E. and encourage greater local church participation with them. 
We remember our Lord's admonition to feed the hungry and are thankful for 
the Food Pantry ministries in Hertford and Northampton Counties and hope 
to see another developed soon in Bertie County. We wish to encourage con- 
tinued support from our churches. 

We are encouraged by the continuing efforts of local churches of the West Cho- 
wan Baptist Association to develop ministries to the Developmentally Disabled 
individuals that seek to learn more of Christ. 
Our budgeted funds have been shared according to these concerns. 

Respectfully, 
Harvey Jackson, Chairman

Building & Ground Committee 

Your House and Grounds Committee has been at work throughout the Associa- 
tional year. The parking area and the driveways to the Association office were paved 
at the cost of $5,387.40. The care of the grounds to the association was contracted 
to Tri-Co Landscape Materials this year. 

At the present time, the Association home at Aulander is being rented for $300 
a month. 

The Committee feels that at the time our buildings are in good condition.

North Carolina Baptist Hospital 

The year 1991 is significant in the history of Baptist Hospital - it marks the 50th 
anniversary of its entering a partnership with the Bowman Gray School of Medicine 
of Wake Forest University, to form one of the 126 academic medical centers in the 
nation. Appropriate events have been planned to celebrate this anniversary. 

This partnership makes it possible for Baptist Hospital to offer it's patients the 
most advanced technology for diagnosing and treating their health problems. For 
example, ours is one of 15 medical centers in the nation involved in clinical trials 
of a new coronary laser which vaporizes plaque in blocked coronary arteries. We 
are one of five centers in the U.S. conducting clinical trials in stereotactic radiosur- 
gery, a procedure in which high-energy beams of radiation from a linear accelerator 
are focused by computers on brain tumors and lesions to destroy them. This proce- 
dure can be done on an outpatient basis. We are one of 24 Comprehensive Cancer 
Centers in the nation. We are the designated organ procurement agency for north- 
west North CaroHna, and we recently received approval to begin performing pan- 
creatic transplants this year. Early in 1992, we expect to open our new Center for 
Positron Emission Tomography, one of the most advanced radiological services which 
is capable of measuring the chemical structure of the body. This new diagnostic proce- 
dure promises to make possible earlier detection, and hence, earlier treatment of 
tumors, hopefully, improving the outcome of the treatment. 

During the past year, the hospital admitted approximately 22,000 patients, and 
almost 400,000 persons were treated through the various outpatient services of the 
Medical Center. These patients came from most counties in North Carolina, from 
32 other states, and from several other countries. 

During the past year. Baptist Hospital was re-accredited by the Joint Commission 
on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations, and the survey ranked it in the top 



-67- 



10 percent of hospitals in the nation. According to a recent report from the N.C. 
Medical Database Commission, average charges for care at Baptist Hospital are 10 
percent below the average charges for similar diagnoses in hospitals statewide, and 
substantially lower than charges in the other North Carolina academic medical centers. 

The Pastoral Care Department, which is funded in part through the Cooperative 
Program, provided Clinical Pastoral Education to 42 students during the past year. 
The Pastoral Care staff provided more then 54,000 specific ministries to hospital pa- 
tients, family members, and staff. And, the counseling division provided over 21,700 
counseling sessions. 

For the first time since 1978, a Mother's Day Offering exclusively for Baptist Hospi- 
tal Benevolent Care was received in North Carolina Baptist Churches. The staff and 
patients at Baptist Hospital are profoundly grateful to North Carolina Baptists for 
this support.

BCH Gives Children a Chance! 

For an institution that's 106 years old. Baptist Children's Homes of North Caroli- 
na (BCH) looks strongly to the future! 

Three pillars that uphold that futuristic foundation are: 1) The return of the 
Thanksgiving Offering beginning in November 1991; 2) The success of our "Give 
a child a chance!" financial campaign, and 3) Baptists' continued support of BCH 
through the Cooperative Program. 

This financial undergirding made it possible for BCH to serve more than 1,200 
children and families last year through facilities at 13 locations across the state. Be- 
cause Baptists cared enough to give, residents like Lynn will go to Wingate College 
this fall; Chris graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill; Jennifer is in her second year at 
Haywood Community College and Mark earned a football scholarship to North Caro- 
lina A & T. Each of these lives proceeds on firm footing because Baptist Children's 
Homes was there to pave their pathway. 

Most BCH residents come from dysfunctional families where a single parent, most 
often a mother, simply is unable to care for her children. Her frustration with Hfe 
leads to limitless freedom for the children, which leads to troubling behavior. Physi- 
cal abuse, divorce, alcohol, drugs and truancy mark their young hves. 

Baptist Children's Homes provides a safe environment where children learn to name 
their problems and address them to change behavior. At the same time, willing fami- 
ly members also are addressing their problems with the help of BCH social workers. 
In many cases, children and families are restored. 

BCH's "Give a child a chance!" campaign is raising $11 million over three years 
to expand Cameron Boys Camp, boost general operating income and increase en- 
dowment. Gifts and pledges through July totaled $9.3 million and response across 
the state has been overwhelming and heart gratifying. 

Last year Baptist Men of North Carolina helped construct the new Tommy and 
Jeanie Eller Chuckwagon at Cameron Boys Camp that was dedicated May 19.

BCH celebrated this spring the 20th anniversary of the founding of Broyhill Home, 
our western-most campus, in Waynesville/Clyde. With the help of J.E. Broyhill and 
his family, the home was opened in 1971 on 91 hilly acres. It has capacity for 48 
children in group care and for eight girls in emergency care. 

In August 1990 BCH began the Gregg Children's Center for before and after school 
care. The Davidson County program offers security to children of working couples, 
who now don't have to go home to empty houses. 

Children's hopes the world over have been bolstered by the 1991 return of the 
Thanksgiving Offering voted by messengers to the 1989 state convention. While suffer- 
ing through its 13-year absence, BCH lost more than $2 million in potential gifts. 
Our goal this year is $500,000. Becuase of a partnership established in December with 
the Baptist Children's Homes of Sao Paulo, Brazil, BCH-North Carolina will donate 
10 percent of everything it receives over the $500,000 goal for work in that desper- 
ately needy land. 

In August 1990, BCH signed an agreement with Gaston County Department of 
Social Services to operate two emergency care homes owned by the county. That raises 
to seven the number of emergency care homes BCH oeprates. Emergency care, in 
which a child at risk of abuse or fieglect can receive shelter right away, is the service 
most in demand throughout the state. Children stay a maximum of 60 days while 
BCH works with the custodian to determine a long-term plan of care. 

The Cooperative Program continues to anchor our budget planning from the 
churches. We urge renewed commitment to cooperative giving among our North Caro- 
lina churches. It is essential, not only for us, but for the entire missions enterprise 
built painstakingly for a century and a half. Baptist Children's Homes receives $1.5 
million from Cooperative Program receipts each year. This is the stackpole around 
which we build our other income planning. A decrease in Cooperative Program dol- 
lars to Baptist Children's Homes would seriously jeopardize our ability to care for 
children. 

Baptist Children's Homes has a 106-year history. But its history is just the knot 
that ties it to a boundless, unbroken ribbon of promise that stretches beyond the 
future to wrap children and families with eternal blessings.

Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Inc. 

1991: Making Life for Older Adults the Best of Times 

The Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Inc. operates four residential 
facilities for Older Adults around the State — Albemarle Baptist Home in the Southern 
Piedmont, the Western North Carolina Baptist Home in Asheville, the Hamilton Bap- I 
tist Home in Eastern North Carolina, and the Brookridge Retirement Community 
in Winston-Salem. 

In Asheville, 1991 began with a great deal of excitement. After more than five years 
of trying to receive state approval to build a nursing care bed addition, the Baptist 
Retirement Homes was awarded a Certificate of Need for 100 medicaid certified nurs- 
ing care beds for its Western North Carolina Baptist Home on Richmond Hill in , 
Northwest Asheville. Currently the only nursing care provided by the Baptist Retire- 



-69- 



ment Homes is the 85 bed nursing care unit at the Brookridge Retirement Communi- 
ty in Winston-Salem. The addition of 100 medicaid certified beds will mean that quality 
nursing care can be offered to Western North Carolina Baptists regardless of their 
ability to pay for the institutional services that they need. 

The 39,000 square foot addition will cost approximately $2.8 million. At the present 
time, the Baptist Retirement Homes has raised approximately $2 million of the $2.8 
million needed to make this long hoped for dream a reality. Baptists across Western 
North Carolina are being urged to help Baptist Retirement Homes meet the financial 
challenge of building this new unit on Richmond Hill. 

In Winston-Salem, the Brookridge Retirement Community completed its second 
year of operation. Under the leadership of a well-trained and committed Christian ' 
staff, the Brookridge Retirement Community's Independent Living area and Health j 
Care Unit are considered among the finest in the state. 

In Albemarle and Hamilton, Assisted Living care is provided to Older Adults in I 
residential settings. The Albemarle and Hamilton facilities offer quality care to Older 
Adults regardless of their ability to pay for the cost of the care they receive. . .a serv- , 
ice unmatched by any other church related long-term care institution in this state. ! 

Please support our ministry with your prayers and financial resources. Help us 
make life for Baptist Older Adults. . .The Best of Times!

Baptist College Report — 1991 | 

j 

A "new-old" event is about to take place in North Carolina Baptist life: A Special \ 
Committee! | 

From time to time we Baptists feel the need to take a hard look at ourselves. We i 
do that through the time-honored practice of asking trusted people to serve on a com- | 
mittee for a year, sometimes two,. In 1956, for example, "The Committee of Twenty- ' 
Five" began a comprehensive study which eventually embraced all aspects of North | 
Carolina Baptist life. That committee reported to a special session of the Baptist State 
Convention called for that purpose on May 5-6, 1959. Again, "The Committee of ! 
Twenty," appointed in 1967, worked for two years before presenting its comprehen- 
sive findings and recommendatons to the Convention in November of 1969. Both 
of these committees provided clarity and guidance for North Carolina Baptists which j 
endured for many years. i 

New times call for a fresh look at ourselves. The "new times" which have taken 
shape in the Southern Baptist Convention since 1979 have particular relevance for 
institutions, agencies, their trustees and the Convention. North Carolina Baptist in- 
stitutions and agencies have rendered distinguished Christian service for a total of 
1,108 years! New times call for a new look by a competent special committee. 

In May the General Board approved a 17-member "Institutions Relations Com- | 
mittee." Lamar Brooks, Wilmington, is chairman. Other members are: Jean P. 
Abernethy, Marian; Dot Allred, Gastonia; Curtis Lee Barbery, Bennett; Harold Ben- 
nett, Boone; Don Bolden, Burlington; Caralie Brown, Raleigh; Kathryn H. Ham- 
rick, Shelby; John H. Hewett, Asheville; Milton A. Hollifield, Jr., Stanley; John 
M. Hough, Jr., Salisbury; James H. Johnson, Candler; Robert B. Poole, Elizabeth

City; George W. Pullium, Jr., Knightdale; Hobart Smith, Charlotte, A. Eugene War- 
ren, Charlotte; J.L. Wilson, Winston-Salem. Their report is due in November, 1992. 

The "new-old" way of study and thought is the North Carolina Baptist, tried- 
and-true way to confront changing times. We thank these 17 good men and women 
who will help us to shape the future together in harmony. They request and deserve 
our fervent prayers.

1991 North Carolina Baptist Foundation 

The Board of Directors and the staff of the North Carolina Baptist Foundation 
are committed to effective leadeship in generating increased perpetual financial sup- 
port of Baptist causes throughout the state, nation and world. With assets approxi- I 
mately $27 million (market value) at the end of the 1990 fiscal year, the income \ 
distribution to Baptist causes is significant each year. 

Typically, assets are either held as endowments paying interest income in perpetui- j 

ty to named Baptist causes, or they are held in trust with current income being paid | 

to individuals and future income being paid to Baptist causes in perpetuity. | 

Earned income distributed to Baptist institutions and i 

mission causes during fiscal year of 1990: $647,180 ' 

Earned income distributed to individuals with Baptist causes | 

named as charitable remainderman during fiscal year j 

of 1990: $686,124 j 

The staff of the Foundation consists of seven full time employees and two persons : 

who provide part-time service in accounting and legal services. The servicing of in- j 

dividual accounts requires continuous contact with trustors, donors and those desig- j 

nating gifts through Wills. The increased number of requests for assistance in seminars ; 

and conferences by churches, associations and individuals has made part-time as- j 

sistance necessary in regions of the state some distance from the office. i 

There are continual improvements being made in available charitable estate plan- j 

ning computer software, constant changes in state and federal regulations which af- ' 

feet charitable estate planning and an increased need for technical training and 1 

assistance to serve the ever increasing needs of both the development staffs of our j 

institutions and the individuals utilizing the Foundation services. The Foundation i 



j 
i 



continues to provide for these needs to maximize the growth in financial support for 
Baptist causes. 

In 1990, the Foundation moved into a new home. The 6,000 square foot office 
building was constructed from gifts from individuals and is located on property provid- 
ed by the Baptist State Convention next to the Baptist Building in Gary. The new 
facility was occupied in February 1990 and provides much needed space for the work 
of staff as well as for conferences and meetings. Baptist groups are invited to use 
the meeting rooms when in the Raleigh/Cary area. We extend an invitation to church 
groups to call and arrange a visit to the newest building used for the Lord's service 
by North Carolina Baptists.

Christian Action League of North Carolina, Inc. 

This has been a most eventful year for the cause of Applied Christianity. 

With North Carolina facing a 1.1 billion dollar shortfall and with news accounts 
stating that citizens from North Carolina are spending 100 million dollars annually 
in the Virginia lottery, it appeared almost inevitable that a lottery bill would pass 
the 1991 legislative session. 

In addition to the economic factors, the gambling industry had 13 lobbyists work- 
ing the halls of the Legislature daily promoting lottery legislation. 

Even though lottery legislation passed the Senate, it was quite evident that the lot- 
tery lobbyists could not line up enough votes to get the measure through the House 
of Representatives. Lottery supporters did not push for a vote, for they knew that 
the legislation would be dead. Therefore, the proposal will be eligible to be consi- 
dered in the next legislative session when it convenes in June, 1992. 

Between now and then, it is most important that you secure a commitment from 
your representatives in the North Carolina House to oppose state-sponsored gam- 
bling. The Senate will not be voting on the lottery in 1992 because it has already passed 
that body. 

Key lottery supporters were Senator Ken Royall (D-Durham), Senator George 
Daniels (D-Caswell), Representative David Redwine (D-Brunswick), Representative 
Joe Mavretic (D-Edgecombe), Representative Robert Hunter (D-McDowell) and 
Representative Frank Rhodes (R-Forsyth). 

Opponents of the legislation were led by Governor Jim Martin, Lieutenant Gover- 
nor Jim Gardner, Senate President Pro-Tem Henson Barnes (D-Wayne), and Speak- 
er of the House Dan Blue (D-Wake). 

While we were successful in side-tracking lottery legislation, the Legislature refused 
to enact the following proposals: 

1. PARENTAL CONSENT: North Carolina remains one of the few 
states in the nation that allows a minor to receive an abortion without 
parental consent. Legislation to enact parental consent passed the House, 
but died in the Senate. 

2. DRUNK DRIVING: The House passed legislation that would change 
the alcohol blood level from .1 to .08 as the breathalyzer standard for 
Driving-While-Impaired. The Senate refused to act on this proposal. 

-72- 



3. OPEN CONTAINERS OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES IN MO- 
TOR VEHICLES: It is ironic that an open liquor bottle is prohibited 
in a motor vehicle, yet there is no hmit to the number of open beer con- 
tainers allowed in a motor vehicle. Highway safety authorities confirm 
that a large majority of the drivers charged with driving-while-impaired 
are beer drinkers. N.C. Highway Patrol officials endorsed the open con- 
tainer legislation, but it got "hung up" in a House committee. 

4. TEEN AGE PREGNANCIES: In order to address this growing 
problem, legislation was introduced to require sexual abstinence instruc- 
tion to be a part of the curriculum of our public schools. (Such instruc- 
tion has been very successful in reducing teen-age pregnancies in other 
areas of our country.) However, such a program was opposed by our N.C. 
Department of Public Instruction. Education officials charged that such 
legislation would be imposing a standard of morality upon our youth. The 
measure simply stated: 'The public school curriculum shall include in- 
struction, in appropriate grades and classes, that abstinence from sexual 
activity outside of marriage is the expected standard for all school age 
children, that abstinence from sexual activity is the only certain means 
of avoiding out-of-wedlock pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, in- 
cluding AIDS, and other associated health problems; and that a mutually 
faithful monogamous relationship in the context of marriage is the best 
lifelong means of avoiding sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS." 

5. ABORTION FUND: North Carolina is the only Southeastern state 
that used state funds for medically unnecessary abortions. Some $400,000 
of state tax funds have been budgeted by the state legislature to pay for 
these elective abortions. Therefore, we are denying thousands of babies 
right here in North Carolina their constitutional right of life, liberty, and 
pursuit of happiness. 

How can we turn the tide on these important moral issues? It will occur when North 
Carolina Baptists and other Christians are willing to become actively and publicly 
involved in upholding our Judeo-Christian moral standards. It is not enough just 
to wring our hands and just talk about the problems. We need to cry out publicly 
and act against sin. Baptists need to be informed about the stands taken on these 
issues by those who are running for public office, and then vote for those who reflect 
our standards. 

In addition to a demanding legislative session, the Christian Action League has 
successfully assisted several counties and municipalities in liquor, beer, and wine 
referendums. 

Good Government Seminars were conducted in the Asheville and Wilmington areas, 
at which some of the above issues were addressed. Nationally recognized authorities 
came to share their expertise on the issues of gambling and family matters. These 
included Dr. Paul Cameron, Chairman of the Family Research Institute, Washing- 
ton, D.C., Austin McGuigan, former State's Attorney for Connecticut, and Bill Swin- 
dell, National Field Director, American Family Association, Tupelo, Mississippi. 

We praise God for your prayer and financial support as we join in addressing moral 
and ethical issues facing our society.

Coy C. Privette, Executive Director

The Biblical Recorder 



The Baptist world is changing rapidly; some would contend it is for good while 
others think it is nothing short of a tragedy. 

Whatever one's view may be, there is an indispensable need for correct and relia- 
ble information. The Biblical Recorder was born and continues to serve for that 
purpose. 

People are reading less than any time in recent history. It is true of secular publi- 
cations, it is true of wholesome books from respected libraries, it is true of religious 
publications. We live in an electronic, fast-food, everything is disposable age! We 
often think we know the answers only to discover later we do not. 

An informed Baptist is a better Baptist; an uninformed Baptist may be an unin- 
volved or disruptive Baptist. No democracy, including our local churches and the 
denomination they comprise, can survive long without an informed, involved consti- 
tuency which makes corporate decisions based upon accurate information from reliable 
sources. 

The most important thing facing us at this point is to get the Recorder into more 
Baptist homes than ever before. Your support as a subscriber and reader and your 
encouragement to others will enable the paper to better serve the constituency with 
accurate and helpful information delivered to Baptist homes and churches. We need 
your help! 

In order to save churches large amounts of money and to increase the readership 
of the Recorder, Church News Service (CNS) was launched in 1990. This system lets 
any congregation have their church newsletter incorporated into the Biblical Record- 
er which saves staff time, postage and printing costs. Usually, for less than what it 
costs to produce the church newsletter, CNS gives the entire Baptist communication 
package to each family in the congregation. We are steadily adding churches to the 
CNS program. 

The paper focuses more and more attention on North Carolina Baptists with news, 
features and inspirational articles which will encourage individuals and churches in 
their witness and ministry. 

Never has God given Baptists a greater opportunity; never have there been as many 
difficulties and obstacles to overcome. One sure way to conquer problems and over- 
come the barriers to effective witness and ministry is to have the facts, know the is- 
sues and be adequately informed. 

That is why the Recorder was born; that is why it serves today. For more informa- 
tion on how your church can subscribe or use CNS, contact:

West Chowan History (Continued) 

Elmer Lee Joyner 

This history continues before the last paragraph on page 15 of /I History of West Chowan 
Baptist Association 1882-1983. 

The association celebrated its centennial at the Helms Center, Chowan College in 
October, 1983, where a brief history entitled "These First 100 Years" was read by 
the Reverend Elmer Joyner, a member of the history committee who had earlier written 
A Historical Sketch of The West Chowan Baptist Association which had been com- 
bined with histories and pictures of all the churches making up West Chowan com- 
piled by the history committee. Dr. Forrest C. Freezor brought the message at the 
centennial celebration. A report was also received showing that when all the labor 
and material for the West Virginia Project was tabulated, around $36,000 had been 
given. 

A devastating tornado ripped through a residential area in the Lewiston-Woodville 
community in March, 1984 to which our churches responded with several thousand 
dollars of aid and collections. The Missions Committee coordinated much of the aid 
to the victims including the use of the Disaster Van and $50,000 in relief funds from 
the Baptist State Convention. Floor plans were adopted that same year for the as- 
sociation office which would be erected on a .7 acre lot on Jersey Street, Ahoskie. 
The lot was graciously donated by Mrs. Odom Newsome. Also the mobile unit that 
had been in use at Rich Square camp for migrant workers was given back to the Bap- 
tist State Convention because the camp had closed. The state convention set the unit 
up in a mobile home park in Franklinton to be used for a chapel. 

The Bertie Union Meeting, an old carry-over from the Kehukee Association, was 
dissolved by the General Board in 1985 and replaced with the Spring Meeting of the 
West Chowan Association. Also three mission trips were taken that same year. Mrs. 
Billy Harris went to Togo; Mrs. William Lawrence journeyed to Jamaica, and Harry 
Ward helped construct a church in England. 

The Director of Missions, Henry Powell, resigned effective at the end of 1986. 
A Search Committee was formed and a revised job description for the DOM was 
adopted. The new associational office was completed. At the spring meeting. Dr. 
Hargus Taylor, Chowan College, read "A Brief Historical Sketch of the Bertie Un- 
ion Meeting"in which he outlined how the meeting came into being and traced it 
through the years until its demise in 1985. A copy of this important research is in 
the 1986 Annual. 

A call rang out from the spring meeting in 1987 asking each church to given an 
additional $200 so that the associational office could be dedicated debt free. That 
fall, due to the resignation of the moderator-elect and the vice moderator declining, 
the association took a historical step and elected Corene Harris as the first woman 
moderator of the West Chowan Association. Also Nathan Copeland, III, modera- 
tor, recognizing the commitment of Rev. Lemar Wheeler, who had donated so many 
Fridays and Saturdays as building chairman to see the completion of the association- 
al office, called for and received the messengers' unanimous support for naming the 
large meeting room in the building, "The Lemar Wheeler Room." On January 5, 
1987 a dinner honoring Rev. and Mrs. Henry Powell, the out-going DOM, was given 
along with a love offering from the churches. The Rev. Lonnie Armstrong was in- 
stalled as the new Director of Missions. That same yea:-, Wayland Lawrence Jenkins, 
Jr. very generously gave the association a home in Aulander, valued at $82,900 to 



-82- 



be used as the residence for the DOM. The association also elected a long range Stra- 
tegic Planning Committee to plan the next five years. 

In 1988 our association entered a partnership with Brazil. The dedication of the 
Association Office Building was conducted on May 22, 1988. The Missions Develop- 
ment Committee reported that the Rev. Phillip Knott, Rev. Tim Coins, and Sue Todd, 
had all been financially aided to conduct preaching missions in Antigua and Trinidad, 
and to teach for a year in China. 

Dr. Jerry Jackson, new president of Chowan College was formally introduced at 
the fall meeting, 1989. Because of an alarming and growing tendency of staff dismis- 
sals throughout Southern Baptist Convention, our association added a Pastor-Church 
Relations Committee to the constitution to help counsel hurting churches and pas- 
tors. Also the Executive Promotion Committee agreed to sell the associational home 
in Aulander and use the proceeds for a housing allowance for the Director of Mis- 
sions. Miss Anna Belle Crouch led a short but successful campaign to get a piano 
for the association meeting room. 

The associational brotherhood led an effort to raise the rest of the funds needed 
to pave the parking lot at the associational office as the group's 1990 project. Fol- 
lowing a report of the financial plight of some of our retired pastors, an offering 
was taken by the messengers at the fall meeting and $671.76 was given to a needy 
annuitant. Billy Nale, Henry Boshen, Joe and Betsy McLean were some of the West 
Chowaners to do mission work in Brazil. The association raised more than $17,000.00 
for rehef of the victims of Hurricane Hugo that almost leveled Charleston, S.C. and 
even did extensive damage as far inland as Charlotte, N.C. Anna Belle Crouch was 
remembered prayerfully and helped financially with expenses for her English teach- 
ing mission to China.

Constitution I 

NAME 

Article 1 . This body shall be known as the West Chowan Baptist Association of North 
Carolina. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the churches connected with 
this body and all ordained ministers who are pastors of said churches, together with the 
officers of this Association and chairmen of all standing committees. Each church of 100 
members and under shall be entitled to two messengers and for each additional 100 mem- 
bers an additional messenger provided that no church shall have more than 10 messengers. 

PURPOSE 

Article 3. The purpose of this Association shall be to inspire, encourage and enlist its 
membership in a spirit of brotherly love and cooperation for the promotion of the entire 
program of our denomination; to the end that the gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus 
Christ might be proclaimed with greater power and effectiveness in our Association, our 
State and Nation, and unto the uttermost part of the world. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the sovereignty or rights 
of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legislative council, nor a court of ap- 
peal. It may advise the churches and recommend measures of usefulness for their adop- 
tion, but cannot bind them in any way. There shall be full recognition of the autonomy 
of the local church and there shall be full recognition of the autonomy of the Association. 
However, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of the Association, it 
justly claims the very highest consideration and regard for itself, its objects and its recom- 
mendations. 

Article 5. Any Baptist church in good standing approving the design, objects and prin- 
ciples of this Association, and holding the same doctrine and ordinances, may be admitted 
into fellowship upon two-thirds vote of the messengers. All applications shall be referred 
to the Membership Committee for study. Churches desiring membership should give no- 
tice by making application one year in advance. 

Article 6. The Association may dissolve its relation with any church that consistently 
refuses to support the design, objects and principles of the West Chowan Baptist Associa- 
tion. Any irregularities which are reported shall be referred to the Membership Committee 
who will report their finds to the Fall Associational Meeting. The relationship may be 
dissolved by a two-thirds vote of the messengers one year after irregularities have been 
brought to the attention of the association. 

RIGHTS AND DUTIES 

Article 7. Every church will be requested to contribute a percentage of its gifts, or so 
much per resident member for defraying the expenses of the Association and for direction 
of the promotional education and missionary work of the Association. This percentage 
or amount shall be sent to the Associational Treasurer monthly by each church treasurer. 

Article 8. Every church will send to every annual session of the Association a letter 
on the form adopted by the Association with such additional information as it may deem 
fitting.

Article 33. Baptist Faith and Message statement. 



I. THE SCRIPTURES 

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is the record of God's reve- 
lation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its 
author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture or error, for its matter. It 
reveals the principles by which God judges us; and therefore is, and will remain to the 
end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which 
all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. The criterion by 
which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ. 

II. GOD 

There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and per- 
sonal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is in- 
finite in hoHness and all other perfections. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, 
and obedience. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, 
with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being. 

A. God the Father 

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the 
flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all 
powerful, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who become children 
of God through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward all men. 



-33- 



B. God the Son 

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, he was conceived 
of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will 
of God, taking upon Himself the demands and necessities of human nature and identi- 
fying Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine law by 
His personal obedience, and in His death on the cross. He made provision for the re- 
demption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and ap- 
peared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He 
ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God where He is the One 
Mediator, partaking of the nature of God and of man, and in whose Person is effected 
the reconciliation between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the 
world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the 
living and ever present Lord. 

C. God the Holy Spirit 

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He inspired holy men of old to write the Scrip- 
tures. Through illumination, He enables men to understand truth. He exalts Christ. He 
convicts of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. He calls men to the Saviour, and ef- 
fects regeneration. He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and bestows 
the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His church. He seals the believer un- 
to the day of final redemption. His presence in the Christian is the assurance of God to 
bring the believer into the fulness of the stature of Christ. He enlightens and empowers 
the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service. 

III. MAN 

Man was created by the special act of God, in His own image, and is the crowning 
work of His creation. In the beginning, man was innocent of sin and was endowed by 
His Creator with freedom of choice. By his free choice, man sinned against God and 
brought sin into the human race. Through the temptation of Satan, man transgressed 
the command of God and fell from his original innocence; whereby his posterity inherit 
a nature and an environment inclined toward sin, and as soon as they are capable of 
moral action become transgressors and are under condemnation. Only the grace of God 
can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of 
God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His 
own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore, every man possesses dignity and 
is worthy of respect and Christian love. 

IV. SALVATION 

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who 
accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal re- 
demption for the believer. In its broadest sense, salvation includes regeneration, sanctifi- 
cation, and glorification. 

A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God's grace whereby believers become 
new creatures of Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart wrought by the Holy Spirit through 
conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in 
the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace. Repentance is a genuine 
turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment 



-34- 



of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Saviour. Justification is God's gracious and 
full acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who repent and believe 
in Christ. Justification brings the believer into a relationship of peace and favor with 
God. 

B. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is 
set apart to God's purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual per- 
fection through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in 
grace should continue throughout the regenerate person's life. 

C. Glorification is the culmination of salvation and is the final blessed and abiding 
state of the redeemed. 

V. GOD'S PURPOSE OF GRACE 

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, sanc- 
tifies, and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the free agency of man, and com- 
prehends all the means in connection with the end. It is glorious display of God's 
sovereign goodness, and is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable. It excludes boasting 
and promotes humility. 

All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and 
sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall preserve to 
the end. Believers may fall into sin and through neglect and temptation, whereby they 
grieve the Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, bring reproach on the cause of 
Christ, and temporal judgments on themselves, yet they shall be kept by the power of 
God through faith unto salvation. 

VI. THE CHURCH 

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized believ- 
ers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing 
the two ordinances of Christ, committed to His teachings, exercising the gifts, rights, 
and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the 
ends of the earth. 

This church is an autonomous body, operating through democratic processes under 
the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In such a congregation, members are equally responsible. 
Its Scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. 

The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of Christ which includes all 
of the redeemed of all the ages. 

VII. BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER 

Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, 
the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in 
a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old 
life, and resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is a testimony to his 
faith in the final resurrection of the dead. Being a church ordinance, it is prerequisite to 
the privileges of church membership and to the Lord's Supper. 

The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, 
through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the 
Redeemer and anticipate His second coming. 



-35- 



VIII. THE LORD'S DAY 

The first day of the week is the Lord's Day. It is a Christian institution for regular ob- 
servance. It commemorates the resurrection of Christ from the dead and should be 
employed in exercises of worship and spiritual devotion, both public and private, and by 
refraining from worldly amusements, and resting from secular employments, work of 
necessity and mercy only being excepted. 

IX. THE KINGDOM 

The Kingdom of God includes both His general sovereignty over the universe and His 
particular kingship over men who willfully acknowledge Him as King. Particularly the 
Kingdom is the realm of salvation into which men enter by trustful, childlike commit- 
ment to Jesus Christ. Christians ought to pray and to labor that the Kingdom may come 
and God's will be done on earth. The full consummation of the Kingdom awaits the 
return of Jesus Christ and the end of this age. 

X. LAST THINGS 

God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world its appropriate end. 
According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the 
earth; the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The un- 
righteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous 
in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will dwell forever in 
Heaven with the Lord. 

XL EVANGELISM AND MISSIONS 

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord 
Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations. The new birth of man's spirit 
by God's Holy Spirit means the birth of love for others. Missionary effort on the part of 
all rests thus upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate life, and is expressly and 
repeatedly commanded in the teachings of Christ. It is the duty of every child of God to 
seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by personal effort and by all other methods in 
harmony with the gospel of Christ. 

XII. EDUCATION 

The cause of education in the Kingdom of Christ is to coordinate with the causes of 
missions and general benevolence, and should receive along with these, the liberal sup- 
port of the churches. An adequate system of Christian schools is necessary to a complete 
spiritual program for Christ's people. 

In Christian education, there should be a proper balance between academic freedom 
and academic responsibility. Freedom in any orderly relationship of human life is al- 
ways limited and never absolute. The freedom of a teacher in a Christian school, college, 
or seminary is limited by the preeminence of Jesus Christ, by the authoritative nature of 
the Scripture, and by the distinct purpose for which the school exists. 

XIII. STEWARDSHIP 

God is the source of all blessings, temporal and spiritual; all that we have and are, we 
owe to Him. Christians have a spiritual debtorship to the whole world, a holy trustee- 
ship in the gospel, and a binding stewardship in their possessions. They are therefore 
under the obligation to serve Him with their time, talents, and material possessions; and 



-36- 



should recognize all these as entrusted to them to use for the glory of God and for help- 
ing others. According to the Scriptures, Christians should contribute of their means 
cheerfully, regularly, systematically, proportionately, and liberally for the advancement 
of the Redeemer's cause on earth. 

XIV. COOPERATION 

Christ's people should, as occasion requires, organize such associations and conven- 
tions as may best secure cooperation for the great objects of the Kingdom of God. Such 
organizations have no authority over one another or over the churches. They are volun- 
tary and advisory bodies designed to elicit, combine, and direct the energies of our peo- 
ple in the most effective manner. Members of New Testament churches should 
cooperate with one another in carrying forward the missionary, educational, and benev- 
olent ministries for the extension of Christ's Kingdom. Christian unity in the New Testa- 
ment sense is spiritual harmony and voluntary cooperation for common ends by various 
groups of Christ's people. Cooperation is desirable between the various Christian de- 
nominations, when the end to be attained is itself justified, and when such cooperation 
involves no violation of conscience or compromise of loyalty to Christ and His Word as 
revealed in the New Testament. 

XV. THE CHRISTIAN AND THE SOCIAL ORDER 

Every Christian is under obligation to seek to make the will of Christ supreme in his 
own life and in human society. Means and methods used for the improvement of society 
and the establishment of righteousness among men can be truly and permanently helpful 
only when they are rooted in the regeneration of the individual by the saving grace of 
God in Christ Jesus. The Christian should oppose in the spirit of Christ every form of 
greed, selfishness, and vice. He should work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the 
aged, the helpless, and the sick. Every Christian should seek to bring industry, govern- 
ment, and society as a whole under the sway of the principles of righteousness, truth, 
and brotherly love. In order to promote these ends. Christians should be ready to work 
with all men of good will in any good cause, always being careful to act in the spirit of 
love without compromising their loyalty to Christ and His truth. 

XVI. PEACE AND WAR 

It is the duty of Christians to seek peace with all men on principles of righteousness. 
In accordance with the spirit and teachings of Christ, they should do all in their power to 
put an end to war. 

The true remedy for the war spirit is the gospel of our Lord. The supreme need of the 
world is the acceptance of His teachings in all the affairs of men and nations, and the 
practical application of His law of love. 

XVII. RELIGIOUS LIBERTY 

God alone is Lord of the conscience, and He has left it free from the doctrines and 
commandments of men which are contrary to His Word or not contained in it. Church 
and state should be separate. The state owes to every church protection and full freedom 
in the pursuit of its spiritual ends. In providing for such freedom, no ecclesiastical group 
or denomination should be favored by the state more than others. Civil government be- 
ing ordained of God, it is the duty of Christians to render loyal obedience thereto in all 
things not contrary to the revealed will of God. The church should not resort to the civil 



-37- 



power to carry on its work. The gospel of Christ contemplates spiritual means alone for 
the pursuit of its ends. The state has no right to impose penalties for religious opinions 
of any kind. The state has no right to impose taxes for the support of any form of 
religion. A free church in a free state is the Christian ideal, and this implies the right of 
free and unhindered access to God on the part of all men, and the right to form and 
propagate opinions in the sphere of religion without interference by the civil power.

Belle Crouch, the music council and volunteers. It is known state wide as the number 
one sought program as a music day camp. (3) A class for Hospice, ministering to 
the terminally ill. (4) A class was started at Odom Prison. (5) A disaster relief team

We express our gratitude to the Jackson Baptist Church and co-host, Creeksville Bap- 
tist Church and to the Murfreesboro Baptist Church and co-host, Buckhorn Baptist Church 
for their fine hospitality and delicious meals. 

We thank Norman Godwin, moderator, our musicians, committee members, preacher 
Rev. Robbie Best, and all program participants for their leadership, special music and 
accompaniment, informative reports and inspirational messages. We have been blessed 
by the Hamilton Home report by Peggy Furlough, Pearl Best, Helen Barnhill and Sadie

Be it resolved, that we express our gratitude and thanksgiving to Rev. Lonnie Arm- 
strong, Director of Missions and our Associational Secretary, Jo- Ann Mizelle for their 
extra-mile faithfulness to the work of our Association. 

Be it resolved, that we express to God our appreciation for Dr. and Mrs. Ronald Hill 
for their willingness to share with us of their 40 years as missionaries to Thailand. May 
we undergird them with our prayers as they seek God's will in new work. 

Be it resolved that we give gratitude to God for the Son shine Dr. Bruce Whitaker has 
brought to the life of NC Baptists. 

We express our gratitude to God for the leadership, guidance and encouragement given 
to us during this meeting by BSC leaders. Dr. Richard Smith and Rev. Jim Lambert. 
Further, we express gratitude to God for Mrs. Velma Ferrell, our BSC representative. 

Be it further resolved, that we give our thanks and appreciation to the Missions 
Development Committee and the West Chowan Disaster Team volunteers who did such 
a wonderful job in South Miami preparing and serving meals to the victims of Hurricane 
Andrew. May we prayerfully support financially the purchase of an Associational Disaster 
Van. We further express our gratitude to God for those who served as mission volunteers 
to Brazil. 

As we close this Annual Fall Meeting this afternoon with a challenge from Mrs. Donice 
Harrod, may we resolve to pray and work that the coming year will be the best ever in 
advancing the work of our Lord in the West Chowan Baptist Association. 

Respectfully submitted,

The year of 1991-92 has been a good year in many ways: Our Program Directors, 
with the help of their committees, have planned well and carried them to successful con- 
clusions. 

The Apostoloi Team, composed of three young ladies from the Youth and Campus Minis- 
tries, did a great job working with our churches for 10 weeks this past summer. 

Seven of our churches have completed "Pact Studies." These studies could be instru- 
mental in helping them to do the kind of planning that would lead to growth instead of 
continued decline. 

Our Seminary Extension has just completed a very successful class for a group of volun- 
teers, who work with Hospice, dealing with "Pastoral Care of The Terminally 111." 

West Chowan's Disaster Team did a wonderful job with the Disaster Van feeding unit 
in South Miami, preparing and serving meals. Our churches responded well, not only 
with many goods and things to be taken to Florida, but with monetary donations to be 
used in clean up and restoration of the area destroyed by hurricane Andrew. The total 
amount through September 30 was $9,608.85. Thanks for all you do.

Executive Promotion Committee Report 

The Executive Promotion Committee met four times during the associational year. Each 
organizational director and committee chairperson was given an opportunity to give a report 
and promote their work. Some of the highlights in the Association this year were: 

1 . Earmarked $3,000 from the Contingency Fund for the World Missions Conference 
in October, 1993. 

2. Promoted Associational Emphasis Week, May 18-24, 1992. 

3. Encouraged all churches to sign up for the Cooperative Program Sunday. 

4. To present changes in the Constitution to upgrade Council and Executive Pro- 
motion Committee at fall session. 

5. Incorporated the West Chowan Baptist Association. 

6. The Association went on record stating: 

(1) That we oppose homosexuality 

(2) That we have the responsibility to minister to homosexuals as well as others 
in need, such as alcoholics, drug abusers, prostitutes or prisoners. 

(3) That we also uphold the Baptist principal of the Autonomy of the local church. 

7. An Apostoloi Team consisted of three young ladies who worked with the young 
people in twelve churches in the the association. This was a big success. 

8. Appointed a World Missions Conference Committee. They were: 

Director - Rev. Lonnie Armstrong 
Secretary - Mrs. Jo-Ann Mizelle 

-52- ^ 



Prayer Leader - Mrs. Mary Anne Britton 
Hospitality Leader - Mrs. Carolyn Brinkley 
Transportation Leader - Rev. Lemar Wheeler 
Promotion Leader - Rev. Stephen Moore 
Special Events Leader - Rev. Robbie Best 
Financial Coordinator - Ms. Sally Ann Barber 
9. Appointed a Director of Missions Search Committee. They were: 
WMU - Mrs. Melinda Harris 
Sunday School - Mrs. Ruth Miller 
Brotherhood - Rev. Harold Delong 
Evangelism - Rev. Robbie Best 
Discipleship Training - Rev. Billy Nale 
and a representative from each county: 
Northampton - Rev. Joe McLean 
Hertford - Mr. Harry Ward 
Bertie - Mrs. Betty Lassiter 
ex-officio - Rev. Lonnie Armstrong 
In my closing report, I am addressing them to item No. 9. I am sure it is known by 
now that our Director of Missions, Rev. Lonnie Armstrong will be retiring in May, 1993. 
This is his request and the Association respects it. 

I have known Brother Lonnie for approximately five years. We became a part of the 
association the same year, he as Director of Missions; myself as Clerk. I have never worked 
with anyone any more dedicated to his duties than Brother Lonnie. He was always looking 
for ways to move the association forward and the association has gone forward under his 
leadership. He wanted the committees to function in their respective areas. He wanted 
things to be done according to their job descriptions. I failed him sometimes in this respect. 
Brother Lonnie is a thoughtful caring person. One who will take time to listen to you and 
help you if you have a problem, a person who is easy to talk to. I will miss him in many 
ways as Director of Missions. 

My prayers are with the Search Committee in getting someone to serve the Association 
as Director of Missions. 

This past year has been challenging and very rewarding because of the things that were 
accomplished. We give God all the praise and glory for them.

Stewardship Development Committee Report 

The Stewardship Development Committee gives a big thanks to all of our churches for 
their stewardship gifts to the West Chowan Baptist Association for this past year 1991-92. 
It has been your support that has made this year again a good one. 

Basic stewardship principles are the same for the individual, the church or the associa- 
tion. God, as creator-owner of all things, has a purpose for all things. We are his stewards: 
therefore, we are to order our lives and use resources according to God's intention. 

This committee worked on the new budget for 1992-93 and presented it to the Council 
and Executive Promotional Committee and was adopted. The total is $80,265.14. 

If we are to be a positive force in carrying out the ministry of West Chowan, we need 
the financial commitment of all 60 churches. Thank you for your concern and support. 

Respectfully submitted, 
"53- Ronald W. McSwain, Director 



RA Report 



We had a very successful year in RA's. RA Week was celebrated November 3-9, 1991 . 
We had an RA Rally at Ross Baptist Church in Bertie County which 50 attended on 
November 9th. In March we had the RA World Walk for Home Missions. The leaders 
and boys who participated received a patch. Also, in the latter part of March a RA small 
car race was held at Merry Hill. There were approximately 150 in attendance. In April 
we had the RA Track Meet with about 200 boys and leaders. Ribbons and certificates 
were given to each participant. 

We have talked with several churches concerning RA's. If you have any boys in your 
church that are not in an active program, why not call me and lets get RA's started in 
your church. 

Thank you for your support this year. Be sure to look at the associational calendar for 
next years activities for the boys and plan to take part.

Sunday School Report 

Thank you for your support in Sunday School this year. We are growing and I still 
need a lot more support from the churches. 

We have an exciting year before us. There are more lost people in our nation today 
than ever before. Our theme this year is "Breakthrough, Equip to Win." We need to 
get on fire for the Lord and minister to those around us. Tell others what God has done 
in your life, what he is doing every day. Share his love. 

We had Sunday School Leadership Night on September 15th at Union. There were 60 
people in attendance with 15 churches represented. I know some of you must have over- 
looked this date or something more important than equipping ourselves to teach God's 
word was happening. 

If your Sunday School people have not had some training, I hope you have something 
planned for them. 

Thanks again for allowing me to serve as your Sunday School Director. 

In Christ's love, 
Ruth Miller 

Associational Discipleship Training Report 

Discipleship Training is the organization assigned the task of helping church members, 
new church members, and church leaders (also potential leaders) grow in their Christian 
discipleship. The Discipleship Training program does not compete with other church pro- 
grams, but when properly administered, enhances the total work of the church. 

The Discipleship Training Program has responsibility for teaching in five major con- 
tent areas. These are: Christian Doctrine, Christian Ethics, Christian History, Church 
Polity and Organization, and Skill Development (in performing the function of a New 
Testament church). 

During this past church year Discipleship Training in our association: 

1. Sponsored a Children's/Youth Bible Drill at Galatia Baptist Church. 

2. Sent children and youth to Children's/ Youth Bible Drill in Raleigh, NC. 



-54- 



3 . Encouraged every church to study the Southern Baptist Convention Doctrinal Study 
for this year (The Doctrine of the Bible). 

4. Sponsored a leadership conference at First Baptist Church, Ahoskie at the 
Association Key Leadership Conference. 

5. Sponsored "M" Night at First Baptist Church, Ahoskie. Dr. Wayne Jones, our 
guest speaker, spoke on the importance of equipping adults for church growth. 

I am available to serve the churches of West Chowan Association. Please let me help 
you by informing me of the particular training needs of your church.

Seminary Extension Report 

The Seminary Extension group has conducted one class in Pastoral Care with the termi- 
nally ill. The class was well received and attended. It is planned to repeat this class in 
the spring if there are enough pastors who are interested. 

There are also plans to conduct a course in Christian Ethics again provided there is 
sufficient interest. Other courses will be offered if you call me and providing we can find 
a qualified instructor.

WMU Annual Report 1992 

CALLED AND ACCOUNTABLE 

Women's Missionary Union, WMU, is an auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Church and 
West Chowan Bapfist Association that exists to teach churches about missions so they will 
be more involved in missions at home and around the world through active ministry of 
prayer for and financial support of missions. The work of the WMU of the West Chowan 
Baptist Association is directed by the associational council, which is composed of 17 
members that represent the three counties in our association. We have had a wonderful 
year as we accepted the call of God and became more accountable to answering that call. 

Our year began with the WMU Leaders from the state conducting a Leadership Training 
Conference for associational leaders at Williamston, NC. Leadership training sessions, 
for all age levels and directors, were held at Conway and Powellsville Bapfist Churches 
in September. The church year has been full of opportunities to learn about missions and 
to serve the Lord through mission action. These opportunities include the following: 
Mission Friends held a craft fair and a workshop on teaching home and foreign missions; 
Girls in Action held day and overnight camps, G.A. events. Recognition Services, a for- 
eign mission study on Venezuela, a G.A. Leadership Appreciafion Tea, a G.A. Banquet, 
and Christmas in August Activities; Baptist Young Women had a workshop for mothers 
on children and peer pressure and a personal witnessing and outreach session; Baptist 
Women sponsored the Women's World Day of Prayer, trips to the Baptist State Conven- 
tion, Wake Forest Seminary, and the Baptist Foundation Building; Mission Acfion had 
a Mission Action Night, Odom Christmas and Valentine events, State Women's Prison 
Christmas project and many local activities in our associafion; Mission Study held foreign 
mission studies in each county and taught the home mission book "No Small Sacrifice"; 
Mission Support encouraged us to pray, give and go.

Four churches received Standard on the Achievement Guide. They were Ahoskie First, 
Creech Memorial, Earlys, and Holly Grove. Receiving Distinguished were Aulander, 
Buckhorn, Cashie, Elm Grove, Potecasi, and Union. 

Two scholarships were awarded by the association. Those receiving them were Patricia 
Bunch and Lori Liverman. 

This year has been an important year as all the council members have learned to use 
the power that is ours through the Holy Spirit. For we are all called and we are all 
accountable to use that power to spread the work of Christ for we are "Labourers together 
for God." We ask for your prayers as we continue to work for the Lord. 

Called and Accountable, 
Melinda E. Harris, WMU Director 
Wanda McEntire, Asst. WMU Director

Report of the Committee on Ordination 



The report of the Committee on Ordination is in two parts. 

PART I 

The Committee met on two occasions for the purpose of examining candidates for the 
gospel ministry. 

On November 3, 1991, at the request of the Harrellsville Baptist Church, the Commit- 
tee examined Mr. Tony Capehart prior to his ordination as a Christian minister. 

At the request of the Seabord Baptist Church, the Committee met on November 24, 
1991, to confer with Mr. Thomas Gibbs relative to his call into the ministry. 

In each instance the Committee questioned the candidate's call, education, gifts for 
ministry, and theological convictions. 

At the conclusion of the questioning it was unanimously agreed that the candidates were 
"set for the defense of the gospel" and the Committee therefore recommended them for 
ordination. 

PART II 

The constitution of the West Chowan Baptist Association provides for standing com- 
mittees "which serve through the year and which shall report to each session or as the 
need arises." 

One of the designated standing committees is "a Committee on Ordination consisting 
of three. It shall be the duty of this committee to make itself available to any church who 
has a candidate for the Gospel ministry." 

These instructions do not include any guidelines or suggestions as to procedure. As a 
consequence there has been wide variation in how the Committee has functioned. 

It is the feeling of the Committee on Ordination that there should be a uniform proce- 
dure with directions as to how the process of ordination shall take place in the West Chowan 
Baptist Association. 

Therefore, the Committee recommends that the Moderator of the West Chowan Baptist 
Association appoint an ad hoc committee to consider the question of ordination and to 
bring a report back to the Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Wint Hale

Tom Caulkins, Chairman 

Evangelism Report 1991-1992 

It is with a note of sadness that I bring you this year's Evangelism Committee's report. 
In August 1992 one of our committee members. Dr. Harold Heath, suffered a heart attack 
and died. We as a committee and individuals are deeply indebted to Rev. Heath for his 
contributions to our lives. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. 

The Committee was privileged to have planned several events this past year that met 
with moderate success. On January 22 Ahoskie First Baptist Church was the site of our 
Prayer Retreat. During the retreat Betty Joyner, John Eure, and Shirley Miller led our 
children, youth, and adults to pray for ourselves, the lost in our community, and our up- 
coming Evangelism Rally and Spring Revivals. Dr. Robert Hamblin from Tupelo, Mis- 

-57- 



sissippi spoke at our February 2 Evangelism Rally. Over 300 people filled Turner 
Auditorium on the Chowan College Campus. The special music was provided by an 
orchestra from Chowan College, a mass choir from churches in the Association, Chowan 
College Choir, and the Ahoskie Baptist Church Youth Choir. 

The Evangelism Rally was followed by a Witnessing Training Seminar conducted at 
the Associational Office, February 22, 1992. Rev. Victor Cole, Associate in Evangelism 
from the North Carolina Baptist State Convention was the seminar leader. Eighteen people 
took advantage of this training. 

The Evangelism Committee and the Youth Committee combined to host a Youth Rally 
on March 14 at Ridgecroft High School. Over 100 youth were in attendance. On July 
14, Chowan College was again the host as "Witness," the college age singing group 
sponsored by the Evangelism Department of the North Carolina Baptist State Conven- 
tion, performed a concert of high energy, youth oriented music. We are hoping this will 
become an annual event. 

This year's committee is hard at work planning events for the upcoming year. Below 
is a list of the events that we anticipate sponsoring this year. Plan now to attend the fol- 
lowing: 

January 23, 1993 - Witness Training Seminar 
March 1993 - Youth Evangelistic Crusade 
Summer 1993 - "Witness" Concert with Keynote Speaker 
August 21, 1993 - Associational Wide Carnival and Gospel 
This year's goal for the committee is to plan events that will equip the saints to witness 
and bring the lost to Christ. Our events will be intentional tailored that end. We welcome 
your suggestions as together we try to win the West Chowan Association for Christ. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robbie Best

Youth Report 

The Associational Youth Committee has had a productive year and plans to increase 
its activities for the coming year. 

Highlighting this past year was a New Year's Eve Lock-In at Ridgecroft Academy with 
over 100 attending. The theme "Making A Difference" centered on the basis of what 
it means to be a follower of Christ and how living into these basics could make a differ- 
ence in the youths personal lives and in their schools and churches. Associational Youth 
Night in March was also a success with about 140 attending. To close out the summer 
the state sponsored "Apostoloi Team" that consisted of three college girls got together 
and had a "end of the summer JAM" in which they planned. It was attended by approxi- 
mately 60 people. 

The goal for the coming year will be to help create a positive Christian peer climate. 
This goal will be accomplished by assisting our churches to cooperate and provide high 
quality activities for our youth.

North CaroUna Baptist Hospital 

REPORT TO THE ASSOCIATIONS 1992 

Baptist Hospital utilizes the skills and training of more than 5,700 employees to provide 
outstanding health care in settings as varied as the Brenner Children's Hospital, the Trau- 
ma Center, and the J. Paul Sticht Center on Aging and Rehabilitation. Last year, the Joint 
Committee on the Accreditation of Health Care Organizations said that Baptist Hospital 
ranks in the top 10 percent of all hospitals in the nation. 

During the past year, the hospital admitted 24,000 patients. It performed 16,662 surgical 
procedures, including 1,020 open heart operations, 29 kidney transplants and 80 bone 
marrow transplants. The AirCare helicopter flew 742 missions. 

Total revenue of the hospital during the year was $407,280,000. Cooperative Program 
gifts from the churches were $656,180, which was applied to the budget of the Depart- 
ment of Pastoral Care. The Mother's Day Offering and other special gifts from the churches 
totaled $424,406 and was used for benevolent care for patients who had no other means 
of paying their hospital bills. 

-59- 



\ 



The Pastoral Care Department, which is funded in part through the Cooperative Program, 
provided clinical pastoral education to 55 students during the past year. The Pastoral Care 
staff provided more than 53,000 specific ministries to hospital patients, family members 
and staff. And, the counseling division provided over 24,000 counseling sessions. The 
professional staff of the Pastoral Care Department continues to respond to requests for 
help from churches in conflict, from pastors and their families across the state. 

The various services of the hospital are readily accessible to all North Carolina Baptists 
and others. A telephone call to the Health-On-Call Office (919-716-2255) can secure an 
outpatient appointment with any one of the various specialists on the staff or can begin 
the process of gaining admission to the hospital if that need is indicated. 

Charges for the hospital services compare very favorably with those in other hospitals 
of the state. Reports from the North Carolina Medical Database Commission indicate that 
Baptist Hospital's charges are lower than the average in other hospitals which provide 
similar services and are considerably lower than in the other teaching hospitals. Our hospital 
did not have an increase in its rates for the current fiscal year of July 1 , 1992 - June 30, 1993. 

The hospital's physical plant continues to expand. A new 840-space parking deck was 
opened in January. A new Emergency Department/Dietary building which will also make 
possible more private patient rooms is under construction now. Construction will begin 
soon on the 170-bed skilled and intermediate care nursing facility and on the J. Paul Stitch 
Center on Aging and Rehabilitation. This expansion will make it possible not only to serve 
more people, but to serve them better. 

The staff and the patients of Baptist Hospital are grateful to North Carolina Baptists 
for the heritage they have given the institution and for the moral and financial support 
they continue to give to its ministry.

1992 Associational Report - Baptist Children's Home 

Like a marathon runner. Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina (BCH) "hit the 
wall" in 1991-92, but persevered to finish standing up! 

In an exhausting year for staff and a myriad of volunteers, BCH successfully concluded 
its first statewide fimd-raising campaign, received its first Thanksgiving Offering since 
1979, dedicated expansion of Cameron Boys Camp, broke ground for the new Fleshman- 
Pratt Education Center in Thomasville, inaugurated an innovative Bible study program 
at Mills Home, installed two new pastors at campus churches and solidified programs that 
have placed it among child care leaders for decades. 

These efforts enabled BCH to serve more than 1 ,300 children and families at 13 facilities 
statewide, including, Chris, named All-Conference nose guard for 2 A state champion 
Thomasville Bulldogs; Sandi, who has enrolled at Gardner-Webb College; Deborah, named 
outstanding Freshman at Thomasville High after enduring a court batde that sent her father 
to prison for abuse; Jennifer, who married on the Broyhill campus where she'd lived for 
seven years; Kathy, who will continue to live at Broyhill while she attends college; and 
a host of other who are making life-changing commitments because they've received a 
second chance at Baptist Children's Homes. 

In April, BCH successfully concluded its "Give a child a chance!" financial campaign 
by gaining three-year commitments for $1 1.2 million, topping the $7.5 million goal, and 
the challenge goal of $1 1 million. Significant priorities accomplished in the campaign are: 
expansion and relocation of Cameron Boys Camp to a more secluded site on its 903-acres 
of wilderness; ground-breaking for the Fleshman-Pratt Education Center, a model day 
care facility for infants, toddlers and two-year-olds; a unique Staff Training Institute for 
child care workers and social workers; and more than $2.7 million committed for perma- 
nent endowment. 

And, the first Thanksgiving Offering for BCH since 1979 raised $510,000, a sum more 
than $100,000 greater than that realized through the combined offering with Baptist Hospital 
and Bapfist Retirement Homes. BCH sent $1,000 from the Thanksgiving Offering to the 
Baptist Children's Homes of Sao Paulo, Brazil as fulfillment of a promise to donate 10 
percent of everything received over the goal to our partners in the south. 

In addition, BCH maintained the partnership with our Brazilian counterparts by sending 
three training teams to Brazil, and hosting a group of Brazilian pastors in Thomasville. 

Most BCH residents come from dysfunctional families where a single parent, most often 
a mother, is unable to care for her children. Her frustration with life, often due to alcohol 
or drug abuse, or having been abused herself, leads to limitless freedom for the children, 
which leads to troubling behavior. Physical abuse, divorce, alcohol, drugs and truancy 
mark their young lives. Behavioral problems make it impossible for the child to continue 
to live at home. 

Baptist Children's Homes provides a safe environment where children learn to name 
their problems and set goals to overcome them, which leads to behavior change and often. 

-61- 



\ 



At the same time, willing family members also are addressing their problems with the 
help of BCH social workers. In many cases, children and families are restored. 

BCH enjoyed a year of tremendous successes, in human terms and in institutional terms, 
which will allow it to continue to affect change in lives. Success in the "Give a child 
a chance!" Campaign will help provide a margin of excellence in the future when the 
pledges are paid. Already, the enthusiasm engendered by the effort have lifted the spirits 
of staff across the state. 

Still, the Cooperative Program continues to anchor our budget planning. We urge 
renewed commitment to cooperative giving among our churches. It is essential, not only 
for us, but for the entire missions enterprise built painstakingly for a century and a half 
Baptist Children 's Homes receives $1.5 million from Cooperative Program receipts each 
year. This is the stackpole around which we build our other income planning. A decrease 
in Cooperative Program dollars to Baptist Children 's Homes would seriously jeopardize 
our ability to care for children. 

An increasingly important aspect of our support comes from estate gifts and bequests. 
More and more people who want their resources to provide new life for children include 
BCH in their wills. 

When Sandi, and Kathy, and Chris, and Barbara come to us, full of potential and hope, 
we want to be able to continue to tell them North Carolina Baptists care enough to give 
them a chance!

Baptist Retirement Homes Report 

1992: MAKING LIFE FOR OLDER ADULTS THE BEST OF TIMES 

One of the greatest needs facing North Carolina Baptists as they move into 1993 is the 
ability to provide affordable quality long-term care services to the "Aged Saints" of our 
Convention. 

The fastest growing segment of North Carolina Baptist life are those individuals in the 
age category of 85 and older. That age group is growing at five times the rate of any 
other population segment in Baptist life. The 85 and older age group most likely to need 
the services provided by a long-term care institution like Baptist Retirement Homes. 
Unfortunately in 1992 in our State, there were not enough nursing care beds to meet the 
needs of the growing number of Older Adults who were ftinctionally impaired and needed 
the services of a long-term care provider. Complicating the shortage problem was the fact 
that the cost of those beds was high (more than average North Carolina Baptist Older Adult 
could pay). And to make matters even worse, in spite of the high cost of those beds, often 
the quality of care provided through those beds was fair at best. In other words, the greatest 
problem facing North Carolina Baptist Older Adults in 1992 was the fact that there were 
simply not enough affordable quality nursing care beds available for use by people like 
you and me and our Older Adult family members. 

Having become aware some years ago of the above mentioned problem. Baptist Retire- 
ment Homes (for the last five year period) has been working to develop a system of 
affordable quality nursing care beds throughout the State for use by North Carolina Bap- 
tist Older Adults. New nursing care beds became available in the Piedmont area of our 
State in 1989 (through the opening of the Brookridge Retirement Community). In 1992, 
affordable quality nursing care will become available to Western North Carolina Baptist 

-62- 



Older Adults through the new Rickman Nursing Care Center being built on Richmond 
Hill in Northwest Asheville. It is our institution's hope that by 1994 affordable quality 
nursing care will also be available to Eastern North Carolina Baptist Older Adults as well. 
Your support has made the above possible. 

In 1992, North Carolina Baptists through their gifts to the Cooperative Program and 
North Carolina Offering for Older Adults made it possible for Baptist Retirement Homes 
to provide financial assistance to more than 60 percent of all the Older Adults living in 
its health care related facilities. In addition, Western North Carolina Baptists contributed 
more than $2.5 million toward the construction of the new Rickman Nursing Care Center 
in Asheville ... a new facility that will enable Baptist Retirement Homes to make life for 
many Western North Carolina Baptists truly. . .the Best of Times. 

Thank you North Carolina Baptists for your support. Please continue to pray for our 
ministry and its ability to meet the ever growing needs of the Older Adults of our Con- 
vention.

Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Inc. 



Report of the North Carolina Foundation, Inc. 

The North Carolina Baptist Foundation, as an agency of the Baptist State Convention 
of North Carolina, is committed under the guidance of the Holy Spirit in serving North 
Carolina Baptists and others in generating an increased awareness of Christian estate 
stewardship principals as a means of financially undergirding churches, institutions and 
mission endeavors on a permanent basis. 

Assets are managed under the direction of the Foundation Board of Directors with 
interest income being paid either in perpetuity to Baptist causes named by the donor or 
to the donor (or heirs) for their lifetime (or specific period of time) before the income 
is then paid in perpetuity to the named Baptist causes. 

Earned income distributed and paid 
to Baptist churches, institutions and 

mission causes during fiscal year 1991: $ 1,100,606 

Earned income distributed and paid 
to individuals (with Baptist causes 
named as future beneficiaries) during 

the fiscal year 1991: $ 1,062,643 
Total market value of Foundation assets, 

December 31, 1991: $36,283,384 

During 1991, the Board of Directors, with the assistance of a nationally recognized 
investment consulting firm, adopted a detailed Investment Policy to govern the types of 
investments that its fiscal agents may make in keeping with the Christian commitment 
of the Foundation, as well as attempt to insure that the future spending value of the invested 
trust fund dollar will keep up with inflation. A study revealed that during the past five 
years the fiscal agents managing the Foundation assets ranked near the top nationally with 
other investment managers who operate under investment guidelines similar to the ones 
provided by the Foundation Board.

The Foundation staff and operations are housed in a building adjacent to the Baptist 
State Convention Building in Cary. Individuals and church groups are invited to call and 
arrange a visit of their trust Agency's office building. 

The significance of the Foundation services was illustrated in a recent experience that 
staff members had while eating in a fast food restaurant in Durham. In taking a seat adjacent 
to a table occupied by a young black police officer, we observed the enthusiasm of a white 
lad of about four years of age as he stood talking to the officer. As the mother and a younger 
child, coming from another area of the restaurant, called for the lad to join them, he walked 
away from the table six to eight feet, turned around and said to the officer, who was now 
standing and preparing to leave, "Can I give you a hug?" After an affirmative answer 
from the officer, the child walked over to the officer, reached around his legs and gave 
him a hug. The officer confirmed to us that he wished the world was filled with people 
like this child. The example corresponds to what so may already have done through the 
Foundation. As they approach the time of leaving this earthly life, they look back affec- 
tionately on what the Lord has done for them during their life and decide that they want 
to leave an expression of their love through an enduring and lasting gift (a "hug," if you 
please) that will serve the Lord until His return. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Edwin S. Coates, Executive Director 

The Christian Life Commission Report 

The Commission seeks to develop Christian morality among Southern Baptists by 
emphasizing the application of the principles of the Christian faith both in personal and 
public life. An ongoing effort is made to provide Christian ethics services to other Southern 
Baptist agencies, state Baptist conventions, associations, churches, and individuals to enable 
Southern Baptists to deal more effectively with the serious moral challenges of our time. 
The Commission encourages the formation and activation of Christian Life Committees 
at all levels of Southern Baptist life beginning with the local church. By coordinating and 
correlating Southern Baptist social concerns, the Commission helps to make the greatest 
possible impact for Christ in support of the Convention's total objectives. 

The presence of full-time Washington-based staff has enhanced gready the Commis- 
sion's ability to fulfill the portion of its program statement which calls on the it to "bring 
to bear Baptist statements, convictions and insights in the field of Christian ethics and 
religious liberty upon important policy making groups" and to "present Southern Baptist 
insight for consideration in the planning of federal government programs on children and 
youth, aging, housing, employment, public health, and other matters pertaining to social 
welfare." 

During the past year, the Washington and Nashville staffs have worked diligently to 
share both with Congress and the White House numerous convictions and concerns of 
Southern Baptists. Commission staff members have been active in corresponding and 
meeting with members of both the legislative and executive branches of the federal 
government concerning areas of Southern Baptist concern. Also, with the approval of the 
Convention's Executive Committee, the Commission launched a new publication. Salt, 
in a newsletter format (six issues a year), which seeks to keep Southern Baptists informed 
on public policy and issues active in the administrative, judicial and legislative branches 
on the federal government. The goal of Salt is to inform and motivate Southern Baptists 
to influence their president, senators, and representatives in a responsible, scriptural manner.

The Commission has also been particularly active during the past year in leading a strong 
coalition of numerous groups supporting legislation restricting alcohol advertising and 
requiring mandatory health warnings on alcohol advertisements. Abortion, drug abuse 
and pornography are among the other issues on which the Commission staff has been 
involved through the Washington office in the past year. The Commission remains 
particularly concerned about the serious threats to religious liberty posed by recent Supreme 
Court decisions and works closely with a coalition of groups trying to remedy these threats 
both through legislation and judicial action. The Commission also continued to pursue 
the fulfillment of its program statement this past year through the filing of amicus curiae, 
"friend of the court," briefs in cases involving abortion, pornography and religious liberty. 

In the religious liberty arena, the Commission also filed its first independent amicus 
curia (friend of the court) brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in the Lee v. Weisman school 
graduation prayer case. In this brief, the Commission asked the Court to overturn a lower 
court order prohibiting invocations and benedictions containing the word "God" at public 
school commencement exercises. The Commission has also asked the Court to revise the 
"Lemon" test and suggested a new test to replace Lemon, a test which is premised on 
the principles of government accommodation of religious practices which exist inde- 
pendently of government action and are not induced or coerced by government. The Com- 
mission believes students must have the right to free exercise of their religious liberty 
while in school, to associate voluntarily with one another during lunch, recess and free 
periods to pray, study the Bible and to discuss religious issues with each other without 
government control or censorship. 

The Commission's 1992 annual national seminar in Washington, D.C. was entitled 
"Citizen Christians: Their Rights and Responsibilities." The program combined interpre- 
tive biblical themes with addresses on subjects such as "How Christians Can Make a 
Difference Inside Government" and "What You as a Christian Can and Cannot Do." 
The seminar also included a White House briefing and a congressional breakfast where 
seminar participants had an opportunity to interact with various senators and congress- 
men about issues of concern to them. 

The Commission continued its long-standing leadership in the field of race relations 
by sponsoring a consultation which brought Southern Baptists of many racial and ethnic 
backgrounds together. The consultation was very helpful in addressing the goals the Com- 
mission seeks and the obstacles the Commission faces in encouraging our denomination 
and our society to be more Christ-like on this issue in the years ahead. The Commission 
also provided leadership in the National Coalition Against Pornography and during Bible 
Preaching-Church Administration Weeks and National Student Weeks at Ridgecrest and 
Glorieta. Commission staff also served as resource persons in events held in numerous 
state conventions as well as for other Southern Baptist agencies and entities. 

The Commission continued its responsibility assigned by the Southern Baptist Conven- 
tion for education and action related to the issue of hunger. Commission staff produced 
the 1991-1992 World Hunger Awareness/ Action Guide entitled Hunger. This guide was 
mailed to every church in the Convention to encourage and to support the observance of 
World Hunger Day. The Commission-produced film. What Shall We Do in a Hungry 
World?, which had previously been mailed in videotape form to Southern Baptist associa- 
tions, continued to be used significantly in heightening Southern Baptists' awareness on 
this vital issue.

Christian Action League Report 1991-92 



For the tenth consecutive year, the gambhng industry has not been able to secure pas- 
sage of any gambhng legislation such as a lottery or pari-mutuel betting (horse and dog 
racing). 

The industry made its biggest push ever during the 1991-1992 legislative session. They 
secured 14 of the most effective and best known lobbyists that money can buy to push 
for their cause, but to no avail. When the legislature adjourned on July 24, the gambling 
industry threw in the towel realizing that they did not have the votes in the N.C. House 
to pass their state-sponsored gambling bill, the lottery. 

What made the difference? People like you did. You secured the commitments from 
your legislators that the role of government is not to exploit their weakest citizens, but 
to appeal to their strengths. Gambling violates that age-old principle. 

There is one thing for sure. The pro-gambling forces will be back. However, the issue 
will be decided on November 3 at the General Election. If you elect legislators who are 
opposed to state-sponsored gambling, it will not make any difference how many lobbyists 
the gambling industry employs. The decision is in your hands. How do the candidates 
from your area stand on this issue? 

There are other very important moral issues that you need to discuss with your legisla- 
tive candidates. Some of them are: 

1 . SEX EDUCATION . . . Are our young people being deceived into believing that 
"safe sex" outside of marriage is possible and okay? The current rise in venereal 
diseases and teenage pregnancies, and the related emotional problems tells us we 
must focus attention on this issue. 

2. ABORTION . . . The Supreme Court ruling regarding the abortion law of the state 
of Pennsylvania opens the door for further restrictions and conditions under which 
abortions can be performed — leaving this up to the states. This year we have 
worked on trying to get legislation passed requiring parental consent for abortion 
on minors, and reducing abortion funding. Both of these measures passed in the 
House but died in the Senate. 

3. ALCOHOL/DRUG ISSUES... It is important that we continue to address 
problems related to alcohol use and abuse. Reducing the blood alcohol standard 
for DWI from . 10 to .08 was one of our targets this year, but it also failed to 
pass in the Senate after passing in the House. 

We cannot overemphasize the importance of getting to know who your candidates are 
and how they stand on these key issues. Plato put it so well: "The price that good people 
pay for not being involved in politics is to be governed by people worse than themselves." 

Thank you for standing with us in the cause of applied Christianity. 

Joe S. Lennon, President 
Coy C. Privette, Executive Director 

The Biblical Recorder Report 

Last year we reported to you: "The Baptist world is changing rapidly; some would 
contend it is for good while others think it is nothing short of a tragedy." In these past 
12 months, the changes are beyond description— on the world scene and in Baptist life. 

Whatever one's view may be, there is an indispensible need for correct and reliable 
information. The Biblical Recorder was bom and continues to serve for that purpose. Never 
was the Recorder more needed than now. 

-66- ' , 



People are reading less than any time in recent history. It is true of secular publications, 
it is true of wholesome books from respected libraries, it is true of religious publications. 
We live in an electronic age where we often think we know the answers to the issues only 
to discover we do not. 

An informed Baptist is a better Baptist; an uninformed Baptist may be an uninvolved 
or disruptive Baptist. No democracy, including our local churches, can survive long without 
an informed, involved constituency which makes decisions based upon accurate informa- 
tion from reliable sources. 

The most important thing facing us at this point is to get the Recorder into more Baptist 
homes than ever before. Your support as a subscriber and reader and your encouragement 
to others will enable the paper to better serve the constituency with accurate and helpful 
information delivered to Baptist homes and churches. We need your help! 

In order to save churches large amounts of money and to increase the readership of 
the Recorder, Church News Service (CNS) was launched in 1990. This system lets any 
congregation have their church newsletter incorporated into the Biblical Recorder which 
saves staff time, postage and printing costs. Usually, for less than what it costs to produce 
the church newsletter, CNS gives the entire Baptist communication package to each family 
in the congregation. 

The paper focuses more and more attention to North Carolina Baptists with news, features 
and inspirational articles which will encourage individuals and churches in their witness 
and ministry. One sure way to conquer problems and overcome the barriers to effective 
witness and ministry is to have the facts, know the issues and be adequately informed. 

That is why the Recorder was born; that is why it serves today. For more information 
on how your church can subscribe or use CNS, contact:

Dedicated to 



LONNIE R. ARMSTRONG 

Director of Missions 
December 1986 - May 1993 




The 1993 Annual of the West Chowan Baptist Association is dedicated to Rev. Lonnie 
R. Armstrong. He has served as the Director of Missions for the past six and a half years. 

Rev. Armstrong is a native of Nash County, North Carolina. After graduation from 
Red Oak High School in 1944, he was called into active duty with the U.S. Army. His 
tour of duty took him to Germany and several states in this nation, after which he was 
discharged with the rank of S/Sgt., in 1946. 

When he returned home, he was employed by Sexton & Sons, Inc., of Rocky Mount, 
N.C., as a salesman and department manager. This job lasted for twenty-one years. 

At the age of forty-two, he answered God's call into the ministry to full time service. 
He enrolled in the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and was called by a two 
Church field in the Tar River Baptist Association, the Castalia and Pleasant Grove Baptist 
Churches. This ministry lasted for six years. 

In September, 1974, he was called as pastor of the Galatia Baptist Church in the West 
Chowan Baptist Association. During his ministry at Galatia, he served on several com- 
mittees of the Association and on the General Board, its Executive Committee of the Bap- 
tist State Convention of North Carolina for five years and three months. 

In December, 1986, he was elected as the Director of Missions of the West Chowan 
Baptist Association. He has faithfully served in this position for six and a half years. On 
May 31, 1993, he retired from the Association. 

The Armstrongs have two children and three grandchildren. They make their perma- 
nent home at: Route 1, Box 192 - Pendleton, N.C. 27862. 

"It is with deep gratitude and thankfulness to God, to all the churches and all the people 
of the Tar River and West Chowan Baptist Associations for twenty-five wonderful years 
in the ministry."

Constitution 

NAME 

Article 1 . This body shall be known as the West Chowan Baptist Association of 
North CaroHna. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the churches connected 
with this body and all ordained ministers who are pastors of said churches, together 
with the officers of this Association and chairmen of all standing committees. Each 
church of 100 members and under shall be entitled to two messengers and for each 
additional 100 members an additional messenger provided that no church shall have 
more than 10 messengers. 

PURPOSE 

Article 3. The purpose of this Association shall be to inspire, encourage and enUst 
its membership in a spirit of brotherly love and cooperation for the promotion of 
the entire program of our denomination; to the end that the gospel of our Lord and 
Saviour Jesus Christ might be proclaimed with greater power and effectiveness in 
our Association, our State and Nation, and unto the uttermost part of the world. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon the sovereignty 
or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical nor legislative council, nor 
a court of appeal. It may advise the churches and recommend measures of useful- 
ness for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. There shall be full recog- 
nition of the autonomy of the local church and there shall be full recognition of the 
autonomy of the Association. However, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and 
intelligence of the Association, it justly claims the very highest consideration and 
regard for itself, its objects and its recommendations. 

Article 5. Any Baptist church in good standing approving the design, objects and 
principles of this Association, and holding the same doctrine and ordinances, may 
be admitted into fellowship upon two-thirds vote of the messengers. All appHcations 
shall be referred to the Membership Committee for study. Churches desiring mem- 
bership should give notice by making application one year in advance. 

Article 6. The Association may dissolve its relation with any church that consis- 
tently refuses to support the design, objects and principles of the West Chowan Bap- 
tist Association. Any irregularities which are reported shall be referred to the 
Membership Committee who will report their finds to the Fall Associational Meet- 
ing. The relationship may be dissolved by a two-thirds vote of the messengers one 
year after irregularities have been brought to the attention of the association. 

RIGHTS AND DUTIES 

Article 7. Every church will be requested to contribute a percentage of its gifts, 
or so much per resident member for defraying the expenses of the Association and 
for direction of the promotional education and missionary work of the Association. 
This percentage or amount shall be sent to the Associational Treasurer monthly by 
each church treasurer.

I. THE SCRIPTURES 

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is the record of God's 
revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has 
God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture or error, 
for its matter. It reveals the principles by which God judges us; and therefore is, and 
will remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme 
standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. 
The criterion by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ. 

II. GOD 

There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and 
personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God 



-23- 



\ 

\ 



is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. To Him we owe the highest love, rever- 
ence, and obedience. The eternal God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy 
Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or 
being. 

A. God the Father 

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and 
the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He 
is all powerful, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who become 
children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. He is fatherly in His attitude toward 
all men. 

B. God the Son 

Christ is the eternal of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, he was conceived 
of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. Jesus perfectly revealed and did the 
will of God, taking upon Himself the demands and necessities of human nature and 
identifying himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine 
law by His personal obedience, and in His death on the cross. He made provision 
for the redemption of men from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified 
body and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His 
crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God 
where He is the One Mediator, partaking of the nature of God and of man, and in 
whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. He will return 
in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. 
He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever present Lord. 

C. God the Holy Spirit 

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He inspired holy men of old to write the Scrip- 
tures. Through illumination, He enables men to understand truth. He exalts Christ. 
He convicts of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. He calls men to the Saviour, 
and effects regeneration. He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and 
bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His church. He seals 
the believer unto the day of final redemption. His presence in the Christian is the 
assurance of God to bring the believer into the fulness of the stature of Christ. He 
enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and 
service. 

III. MAN 

Man was created by the special act of God, in His own image, and is the crowning 
work of His creation. In the beginning, man was innocent of sin and was endowed 
by His Creator with freedom of choice. By his free choice, man sinned against God 
and brought sin into the human race. Through the temptation of Satan, man trans- 
gressed the command of God and fell from his original innocence; whereby his posteri- 
ty inherit a nature and an environment inclined toward sin, and as soon as they are 
capable of moral action become transgressors and are under condemnation. Only 
the grace of God can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill 
the creative purpose of God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that 
God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore, ev- 
ery man possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love. 



-24- 



IV. SALVATION 



Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all 
who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eter- 
nal redemption for the beUever. In its broadest sense, salvation includes regenera- 
tion, sanctification, and glorification. 

A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God's grace whereby believers 
become new creatures of Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart wrought by the Holy 
Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward 
God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Repentance and faith are inseperable experiences of grace. Repentance is a genuine 
turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commit- 
ment of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Saviour. Justification is God's 
gracious and full acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who 
repent and believe in Christ. Justification brings the believer into a relationship of 
peace and favor with God. 

B. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer 
is set apart to God's purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual 
perfection through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth 
in grace should continue throughout the regenerate person's life. 

C. Glorification is the culmination of salvation and is the final blessed and abid- 
ing state of the redeemed. 

V. GOD'S PURPOSE OF GRACE 

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, sanc- 
tifies, and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the free agency of man, and compre- 
hends all the means in connection with the end. It is glorious display of God's sovereign 
goodness, and is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable. It excludes boasting and 
promotes humility. 

All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and 
sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall preserve 
to the end. Believers may fall into sin and through neglect and temptation, whereby 
they grieve the Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, bring reproach on the cause 
of Christ, and temporal judgments on themselves, yet they shall be kept by the pow- 
er of God through faith unto salvation. 

VI. THE CHURCH 

A New Testament Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized 
believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, 
observing the two ordinances of Christ, committed to His teachings, exercising the 
gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the 
gospel to the ends of the earth. 

This church is an autonomous body, operating through democratic processes un- 
der the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In such a congregation, members are equally respon- 
sible. Its Scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. 

The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of Christ which includes 
all of the redeemed of all the ages. 

VII. BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER 

Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, 

-25- 



the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the beUever's faith 
in a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, the believer's death to sin, the burial of 
the old life, and resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is a tes- 
timony to his faith in the final resurrection of the dead. Being a church ordinance, 
it is prerequisite to the privileges of church membership and to the Lord's Supper. 

The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, 
through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of 
the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming. 

VIII. THE LORD'S DAY 

The first day of the week is the Lord's Day. It is a Christian institution for regular 
observance. It commemorates the resurrection of Christ from the dead and should 
be employed in exercises of worship and spiritual devotion, both public and private, 
and by refraining from worldly amusements, and resting from secular employments, 
work of necessity and mercy only being excepted. 

IX. THE KINGDOM 

The Kingdom of God includes both His general sovereignty over the universe and 
His particular kingship over men who willfully ackowledge Him as King. Particular- 
ly the Kingdom is the realm of salvation into which men enter by trustful, childHke 
commitment to Jesus Christ. Christians ought to pray and to labor that the King- 
dom may come and God's will be done on earth. The full consummation of the King- 
dom awaits the return of Jesus Christ and the end of this age. 

X. LAST THINGS 

God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world its appropriate 
end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory 
to the earth; the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. 
The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The 
righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will 
dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord. 

XI. EVANGELISM AND MISSIONS 

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the 
Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations. The new birth of man's 
spirit by God's Holy Spirit means the birth of love for others. Missionary effort on 
the part of all rests thus upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate Hfe, and is ex- 
pressly and repeatedly commanded in - he teachings of Christ. It is the duty of every 
child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by personal effort and by 
all other methods in harmony with the gospel of Christ. 

XII. EDUCATION 

The cause of education in the Kingdom of Christ is to coordinate with the causes 
of missions and general benevolence, and should receive along with these, the liberal 
support of the churches. An adequate system of Christian schools is necessary to 
a complete spiritual program for Christ's people. 

In Christian education, there should be a proper balance between academic free- 
dom and academic responsibility. Freedom in any orderly relationship of human Hfe 
is always limited and never absolute. The freedom of a teacher in a Christian school, 



-26- 



college, or seminary is limited by the preeminence of Jesus Christ, by the authorita- 
tive nature of the Scripture, and by the distinct purpose for which the school exists. 

XIII. STEWARDSHIP 

God is the source of all blessings, temporal and spiritual; all that we have and are, 
we owe to Him. Christians have a spiritual debtorship to the whole world, a holy 
trusteeship in the gospel, and a binding stewardship in their possessions. They are 
therefore under the obligation to serve Him with their time, talents, and material 
possessions; and should recognize all these as entrusted to them to use for the glory 
of God and for helping others. According to the Scriptures, Christians should con- 
tribute of their means cheerfully, regularly, systematically, proportionately, and liber- 
ally for the advancement of the Redeemer's cause on earth. 

XIV. COOPERATION 

Christ's people should, as occasion requires, organize such associations and con- 
ventions as may best secure cooperation for the great objects of the Kingdom of God. 
Such organizations have no authority over one another or over the churches. They 
are voluntary and advisory bodies designed to eUcit, combine, and direct the ener- 
gies of our people in the most effective manner. Members of New Testament churches 
should cooperate with one another in carrying forward the missionary, educational, 
and benevolent ministries for the extension of Christ's Kingdom. Christian unity in 
the New Testament sense is spiritual harmony and voluntary cooperation for com- 
mon ends by various groups of Christ's people. Cooperation is desirable between 
the various Christian denominations, when the end to be attained is itself justified, 
and when such cooperation involves no violation of conscience or compromise of 
loyalty to Christ and His Word as revealed in the New Testament. 

XV. THE CHRISTIAN AND THE SOCIAL ORDER 

Every Christian is under obHgation to seek to make the will of Christ supreme in 
his own life and in human society. Means and methods used for the improvement 
of society and the establishment of righteousness among men can be truly and per- 
manently helpful only when they are rooted in the regeneration of the individual by 
the saving grace of God in Christ Jesus. The Christian should oppose in the spirit 
of Christ every form of greed, selfishness, and vice. He should work to provide for 
the orphaned, the needy, the aged, the helpless, and the sick. Every Christian should 
seek to bring industry, government, and society as a whole under the sway of the 
principles of righteousness, truth, and brotherly love. In order to promote these ends. 
Christians should be ready to work with all men of good will in any good cause, 
always being careful to act in the spirit of love without compromising their loyalty 
to Christ and His truth. 

XVI. PEACE AND WAR 

It is the duty of Christians to seek peace with all men on principles of righteous- 
ness. In accordance with the spirit and teachings of Christ, they should do all in their 
power to put an end to war. 

The true remedy for the war spirit is the gospel of our Lord. The supreme need 
of the world is the acceptance of His teachings in all the affairs of men and nations, 
and the practical application of His law of love. 



-27- 



XVII. RELIGIOUS LIBERTY 



God alone is Lord of the conscience, and he has left it free from the doctrines 
and commandments of men which are contrary to His Word or not contained in it. 
Church and state should be separate. The state owes to every church protection and 
full freedom in the pursuit of its spiritual ends. In providing for such freedom, no 
ecclesiastical group or denomination should be favored by the state more than others. 
Civil government being ordained of God, it is the duty of Christians to render loyal 
obedience thereto in all things not contrary to the revealed will of God. The church 
should not resort to the civil power to carry on its work. The gospel of Christ con- 
templates spiritual means alone for the pursuit of its ends. The state has no right 
to impose penalties for religious opinions of any kind. The state has no right to im- 
pose taxes for the support of any form of religion. A free church in a free state is 
the Christian ideal, and this implies the right of free and unhindered access to God 
on the part of all men, and the right to form and propagate opinions in the sphere 
of religion without interference by the civil power.

In this my final report to West Chowan Baptist Association, I would hke to say 
THANKS to all of you for allowing me to be your Director of Missions for the last 
six and a half years. These have been good productive years, for which I am proud 
and thankful also. You have been so wonderful to work with. It is a good Associa- 
tion. May God's blessings be forever with you, as you make it even better in the years 
to come. 

Lonnie R. Armstrong, DOM 
(Retired) 



Executive Promotions Committee Report 

The Executive Promotion Committee met four times during the Associational year. 
Each organizational director and committee chairperson was given an opportunity 
to give a report and promote their work. Some of the highlights in the association 
this year were: 

1. Planned for the World Missions Conference to be held in October, 1993. 

2. A committee was appointed to study guidehnes for ordination council. 

3. The Apostoli team was in the association and again it was a big success. 

4. The Missions Project Fund was redesignated to the New York and Ukraine Part- 
nership. 

5. The association will participate in "Here's Hope Revival" in March 1995. 

6. An appreciation event was held in honor of Rev. Lonnie Armstrong (DOM). 

7. There were over thirty churches that made a commitment to participate in the 
World Missions Conference. 

8. On August 15, 1993, Rev. Ken Gibson was called by the association to serve as 
Director of Missions. We thank God for him and he has our support in helping 
him to continue to make West Chowan Baptist Association the best in serving 
our Saviour. 

In closing, there are two dear friends who have retired after serving the associa- 
tion well for many years. They are Miss Anna Belle Crouch, music director and Rev. 
Lonnie Armstrong, Director of Missions. We all wish them the very best on their 
retirement and may God bless them in a very special way. 

We thank God for all the things that have been accomplished in the past year and 
are looking forward to the things to be accomplished in this new year. 

Floyd Barmer 
Association Clerk 

Stewardship Development Committee Report 

"Stewardship" isn't an idea that some money-minded theologian conjured up. Nor 
is it a fancy term for money-grubbing con artists who are more at home on a stage 
than in a pulpit. 



-40- 



Although "stewardship" often gets a bum rap because of our own snap judgments 
and shortsightedness, it is a concept firmly grounded in scripture. Stewardship is an 
attitude of serving. 

Thank you for serving West Chowan Baptist Association this past year 1992-93. 
Your giving in support has made this a great year for the kingdoms work. 

This committee worked on the new budget for 1993-94 and presented it to the Coun- 
cil and Executive Promotional Committee and was adopted. The total new budget 
is $83,923.43. 

Thanks be to God for a growing association - past, present and future. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Ronald W. McSwain, Director 

RA Report 

We had a good year in RA's. In November we had RA week in many of the churches 
which was the week of November l-7th. 

We had an RA Rally at Mt. Tabor Church with 100 boys and leaders present which 
was on November 12 and we had a really good time. 

On December 3 we had no response for the RA World Walk for Missions. 

On March 4 we had a RA walk for Home Missions. On March 25 at Merry Hill 
Baptist Church we had the RA and Baptist Young Men and Leaders small car race 
with about 150 in attendance. Trophies were given to first and second place winners 
in each age group. Merry Hill gave us a supper, enjoyed by all. 

The final event for the year was the RA Field Day Track Meet, 200 plus people 
were there. Jo Ann Mizelle led in the registration of the events and many other men 
and women helped with the events and judging. We had three boys and their leaders 
to attend the State Track Meet Conference. 

I would Uke to thank each and everyone of you for your help and support this 
year in the work of the RA's. 

Thank you! 

Your RA Director, 
Rev. Wint Hale 

Sunday School Report 

Thank you for allowing me to serve you again this year. We had a good atten- 
dance at Sunday School Leadership night. The theme for 93-94 is "Breakthrough 
- Serve to Win". Remember our increase goals during the five years of Breakthrough 
are 9.4 percent. 

Evangelism and witnessing are to be a priority in every Sunday School next year. 
Effective teaching is absolutely essential if a Sunday School is to do its work properly. 

"The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few". Let us minister to the hurting 
world as we serve our Lord in West Chowan Association. 

Ruth Miller 

Pastor/Church Relations Report 

The committee met in May and June to make plans and arrangements for a two- 
session conference to be led by David L. Odom, Director of the Center for Congrega- 
tional Health, NC Baptist Hospital Department of Pastoral Care. 



-41- 



The conference is planned for November 8 and 9 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the West 
Chowan Association office building. Monday night's topic is ''Elements of Congrega- 
tional Health and Tuesday night's topic is "Conflict in Congregational Life." 

All pastors, other staff ministers, deacons, SS Directors, WMU Directors, DT Direc- 
tors, Choir Directors, Baptist Men Directors and other interested church members 
are urged to attend. 

Pray for God to use this conference for good in our association. 

Joe McLean 

Seminary Extension 

We have had some success in our seminary extension program. We have conduct- 
ed the courses taught at the Odom Correctional Institution. These courses at Odom 
are part of our missionary outreach in the West Chowan association. It was hoped 
that more of our pastors might be interested in seminary extension, but in truth we 
have had more laymen take the courses which have been offered. We have not used 
our budgeted money for this past year mainly because our State Convention subsi- 
dizes the tuition which is charged. Incidentally some of our Southern Baptist schools 
give full academic credit for seminary extension courses towards a college degree.

Family and Christian Social Ministries Report 

The Committee on Family and Christian Social Ministries assisted two families 
during their medical crisis. We distributed the balance of the funds for this year to 
local agencies which include: Northampton County Department of Social Services, 
Hertford County Department of Social Services, Roanoke Chowan S.A.F.E. and 
Roanoke Chowan Hospice, Inc. The Committee continues to request referral from 
pastors and churches related to needs in the area.

Disaster Relief Ministry 

Unfortunately, your Disaster Relief Team has been very active this past year. We 
began the year with training sessions taught by the American Red Cross consisting 
of Damage Assessment and Mass Care, to better equip ourselves for ministry. 

Several from West Chowan Baptist Association responded to the call for volun- 
teers to go to Miami between Christmas and New Year's Day to do reconstruction 
work. The response of the volunteers was very good and much work was accom- 
plished in cleaning and repairing homes damaged by Hurricane Andrew. 

Our Disaster Relief Team was called to go to Miami again February 25 through 
March 1 to prepare meals for the reconstruction teams from North Carolina work- 
ing in the Richmond Heights community. Fourteen people from West Chowan Bap- 
tist Association worked either in construction or on the cooking team. 

The Disaster Relief Unit was called out again in July to prepare meals for the vic- 



-42- 



tims of the Mississippi River floods, first in Hannibal, Missouri, and then in Hardin, 
IHnois. The Disaster ReUef Team of West Chowan Association was the tenth team 
called on to man the Unit. Sixteen people from the team went to Hardin and worked 
August 24-29. While serving there we prepared approximately 5,200 meals. Most of 
the food we prepared was sent out and served from the American Red Cross Emer- 
gency Response Vehicles, wuh who we work. 

Before the team returned from Illinois, Hurricane Emily was threatening the North 
CaroHna coast. North CaroHna Baptist Men was busy preparing a second Disaster 
Rehef Unit which was called to Buxton, N.C. immediately after the storm. One week 
later, your Disaster Relief Team was in Buxton preparing meals for storm victims 
and relief workers. The Team included volunteers from West Chowan Association, 
Chowan Association, and others. Forty volunteers worked together August 7-11 
preparing and serving more than 11,200 meals. From September 2-11, more than 
40,000 meals were prepared and served by the North Carolina Baptist Men Disaster 
Relief Ministry in Buxton. Many other volunteers have gone to help people clean 
up their homes and get on with their lives. 

This ministry provides the practical help people need who have been victims of 
a disaster. Many of them express heartfelt thanks of our ministry among them. This 
ministry also opens the door for sharing the good news that Jesus loves us. He is 
always present with us. He goes with us through all of life, both the good and the 
bad, and he provides the way of salvation to all who will beheve in Him. 

While we pray we never be needed again, we also call on others to volunteer to 
be trained to be called out on short notice to work hard and cooperatively with others 
under difficult circumstances to meet the needs of disaster victims in the name of 
Jesus. You are invited to be trained for this ministry by attending the annual training 
meeting at Caraway Conference Center April 22-23, 1994. For information and reser- 
vations, call 1-800-395-5102.

WMU Report 

Lead On . . . 

Lead On . . . What a challenge that is to each of us! The Lord is asking no less than 
what he did while he lived here on earth. To be a representative in our churches and 
communities we must be willing and able to serve. WMU is a wonderful training 
ground for serving our risen Lord. I challenge each of you to be the best Christian 
you can be, for you never know who is watching and learning from you. 

Our year began with a planning session in May, 1992. New members to join the

(plus) craft ideas for teaching missions to young children. 

Great things are happening in our association. WMU members are reaching out to 
people in need. Missions projects are being carried out at home and away. New groups 
are being started - GA's at Jackson and Elam. Teenagers are becoming Acteen queens 
- six crowned at Conway in February. Scholarships were given to Lori Liverman and

Congratulations to the following churches that have achieved Distinguished Recog- 
nition on the Achievement Guide for ten or more years: Potecasi (10), Askewville 
(11), Union (14), and Buckhorn (20). 

Please continue to pray for us as individuals and as a council. We are here to serve 
you and to help you in any way we can. As we begin our 100th year as an association- 
al WMU, let's put missions first.

Evangelism Report 

This past year found the Evangelism Committee planning and promoting three differ- 
ent events intended to equip and inspire our churches to be involved in evangelism. 
The committee was privileged to have planned three highly successful events. On Janu- 
ary 23, Reverend Billy Nale, pastor of Galatia Baptist Church, led a Soul Winning 
Witnessing Workshop at the Galatia Baptist Church. The workshop helped to equip 
twenty-two adults to better share their faith. The afternoon session gave all the par- 
ticipants an opportunity to make evangehstic visits in the Conway/Galatia area. 

During March the Evangelism Committee combined efforts with the Youth Com- 
mittee and planned an extensive "Get A Life" Youth Rally which included conduct- 
ing high school assemblies in four of the area high schools and speaking to the Chowan 
College Baptist Student Union. Mr. Steve Freeman was our guest musician/speaker. 
Steve had an opportunity to share his Christian testimony with over 2,200 students 
in Bertie County, Hertford County, Gates County and Northampton East County High 
Schools. The whole event was climaxed with a youth rally held at the Hertford County 
High School with 245 youth and adults in attendance. 

During the summer the Evangelism Committee was able to secure the college age 
singing group "Witness". On July 13th over 250 youth and adults who filled Turner 
Auditorium on the Chowan College campus. Miss Tine Duncan, a youth corps wor- 
ker from Powellsville Baptist Church, gave powerful personal testimony. 

It has been my privilege to have chaired the Evangelism Committee for the past three 
years. During the coming Associational year I will be serving as the Associational 
Moderator, but I am delighted to know that the 1993-94 EvangeHsm Committee will 
be in the capable and dedicated hands of Reverend C.T. Edmonson. I trust that you 
will give him and his committee your support as we work to reach the people of our 
area with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Music Report 



Our musicians, including singers, instrumentalists, handbell ringers, relatives and 
friends have been involved with sacred music among the churches of WCBA this year. 
Thank you for your beautiful service. 

Another Standard of Excellence award was received from the Southern Baptist Music 
Department. This shows that our people are alert to the musical challenges before them. 

Women from various churches were a part of the inter-racial choir for the BWA 
Women's Division Day of Prayer. Mrs. Mary Rose Lawrence, Director of Music at 
the Buckhorn Baptist Church as the director. 

Mrs. Carolyn Edmondson represented our association at the state Key Leadership 
Music conference at Caswell in May. 

Six meetings were held with the music council to discuss the Music Day Camp held 
July 12-16. The members were Carrie Buck, Janet Rogers, Lisa Barber, Libby Wil- 
son, Robbie Best, Lemar Wheeler, Thomas Ruffin, Danny Vancil, Hugh Patterson 
and Lonnie Armstrong. Thirty-five churches were represented at the Music Day Camp. 
Three hundred thirty-nine persons including children, youth and adults were involved. 
The musicals were "Jonah" and "A Technicolor Promise". Mrs. Libby Tilson direct- 
ed the younger children and Mr. Danny Vancil led the older children. Everyone is to 
be commended for an outstanding week. All the children brought can goods for the 
SAFE House and Food Pantry. We thank Ahoskie First Baptist Church for letting 
us use their facilities for the sixth year. July 11-15, 1994 is the date for the next Chil- 
dren's Music Day Camp. Offerings from the camp came to $1,000. This amount was 
divided between the NC Disaster Relief Fund and the NC Partnership in New York. 

Rev. Hugh Patterson, Minister of Music and Youth, Galatia Baptist Church is your 
new WCBA Music Director. He will follow-through with the projects which we were 
unable to complete this year. He led the Key Leadership music conference in Septem- 
ber. Call upon him. He will help you. 

Thanks to all of you for your uplifting encouragement and assistance. You can look 
forward to far reaching results as you praise the Lord with heavenly sounds. Go forth 
in service to reach out to others in music for our Lord and Savior. God Bless You!

The Biblical Recorder 

Associational Report - 1993 

The only thing that is unchangeable is change itself! For most of us it is impossible 
to comprehend the radical and often destructive changes which are taking place in our 
world. In politics, morals, economics and church life, our Baptist world is faced with 
decisions and issues without equal. 

Whatever one's view may be, there is an indispendable need for correct and reliable 
information. The Biblical Recorder was born and continues to serve for that purpose. 
Never was the Recorder more needed than now. 

People are reading less than any time in recent history. It is true of secular publica- 
tions, it is true of wholesome books from respected libraries, it is true of religious pub- 
lications. We live in an electronic age where we often think we know the answers to 
the issues only to discover we do not. 

An informed Baptist is a better Baptist; an uninformed Baptist may be an unin- 
volved or disruptive Baptist. No democracy, including our local churches, can survive 
long without an informed, involved constituency which makes decisions based 

-45- 



\ 



upon accurate information from reliable sources. 

The most important thing facing us at this point is to get the Recorder into more 
Baptist homes than ever before. Your support as a subscriber and reader and your 
encouragement to others will enable the paper to better serve the constituency with 
accurate and helpful information dehvered to Baptist homes and churches. We need 
your help! 

In order to save churches large amounts of money and to increase the readership 
of the Recorder, Church News Service (CNS) was launched in 1990. This system lets 
any congregation have their church newsletter incorporated into the Biblical Record- 
er which saves staff time, postage and printing costs. Usually, for less than what it 
costs to produce the church newsletter, CNS gives the entire Baptist communication 
package to each family in the congregation. Anticipated increases in mailing costs 
makes CNS a greater value in 1994 than even when it was started in 1990. 

The paper focuses more and more attention on North CaroHna Baptists with news, 
features and inspirational articles which will encourage individuals and churches in 
their witness and ministry. One sure way to conquer problems and overcome the bar- 
riers to effective witness and ministry is to have the facts, know the issues and be 
adequately informed. 

That is why the Recorder was born; that is why it serves today. For more informa- 
tion on how your church can subscribe or use CNS, contact:

Christian Action League Report 1993 

Do you beUeve in miracles? They still occur, and we experienced one in the 1993 
session of the N.C. General Assembly. No gambling legislation was enacted during 
that legislative session. 

When the legislators came to Raleigh on January 27, 1993, veteran legislature ob- 
servers admitted that this was the year for a state-operated lottery bill to get out of 
the General Assembly. Both Governor James B. Hunt and Lt. Governor Dennis Wick- 
er, both former lottery opponents, had endorsed the proposed lottery legislation. Fur- 
thermore, there were 42 new House members, and a large majority of them had 
campaigned supporting the lottery. Out of the key elected state officials, gambhng 
opponents had only one friend. House Speaker Dan Blue, and he made no apologies 
about his opposition to state-sponsored gambling. 

What happened? Concerned Christians began to speak up and contacted their legis- 
lators. By the time, Senate Bill 11, The State Lottery Act, had passed the Senate by 
a vote of 27-23, House members who had campaigned supporting lottery legislation 
began contacting members of the House Committee on Constitutional Amendments 
and Referenda to keep the bill in committee. 

In the meantime, some 20 workshops were conducted throughout the state educat- 
ing and motivating the Christian community about this insidious evil under the spon- 
sorship of the League, N.C. Baptist Men, Woman's Missionary Union, the Council 
on Christian Life and Public Affairs, and the N.C. Christian Coalition. Resource 
leaders included Dr. Norman Geisler, author, Gambling a Bad Bet; Dr. Patrick An- 
derson, Professor of Criminology, Florida Southern College; Dr. Paul Jones, Ex- 



-46- 



ecutive Director, Mississippi Christian Action Commission; Bill Brooks, Executive 
Director, Citizens Against the Lottery; from the Baptist State Convention, Doug Cole, 
Executive Director, Christian Life Council; along with George Reed, Director of Chris- 
tian Citizenship; and members of Gamblers Anonymous. 

In the closing days of the legislative session. Rep. David Redwine, (D-Brunswick), 
who has introduced lottery legislation for the past 10 years, requested that the bill 
be held over until the 1994 session. 

Of course, this will give the $300 billion gambhng industry some 10 months to re- 
group their supporters. Also it will give concerned Christians the time to get their 
message to lawmakers that gambhng is bad public policy, and such legislation ought 
to be defeated. 

There is also a pari-mutuel gambhng proposal (horse racing with off-track betting 
parlors) before the General Assembly. The House Bill has also passed a House Com- 
mittee and is currently in the House Appropriations Committee. Both bills are eligi- 
ble for the 1994 session. 

Someone has said: "The only lesson we learn from history is that we don't learn 
from history." North Carolina had an experience with pari-mutuel gambling with 
dog tracks in Currituck and Carteret Counties in the early 1950's. The N.C. Supreme 
Court closed them down as being a public nuisance. 

Perhaps there is no industry that is "riddled" with corruption as much as the gam- 
bling industry. Last year we had legislators indicted in S.C. for accepting bribes from 
gambling lobbyists. Some 10 public officials have pled guilty to corruption charges 
in Kentucky over a gambling pledge "scam", and 12 others are under investigation. 
In Arizona, legislators have gone to prison due to a gambhng scandal. We have had 
Governors from West Virginia and from Maryland to go to prison due to gambling 
scandals in their respective states. Wherever you have legahzed gambling, undoubt- 
edly, you win find corruption in government. 

This is why it is urgent for committed Christians to contact their legislators and 
urge them to oppose any gambhng proposals. 

DRUNK DRIVING: When you deal with politicians, tenacity is a key. For ten 
years, we have sought legislation that would establish .08 breathalyzer reading as the 
standard for drunk driving in North Carolina. In the past, we were able to get such 
legislation through the House, but the Senate was the graveyard. The measure would 
always be referred to a hostile Senate Committee composed largely of trial lawyers, 
and that would be "death" to such a proposal. 

With a change in Senate leadership, the .08 breathalyzer legislation will become 
law on October 1, 1993, which will be a useful tool in helping to remove drunk drivers 
from the highways. 

The League continues to assist local communities in combatting our No. 1 drug 
problem, alcohol. Let us know if a liquor referendum is to be held in your area, and 
we win be ready to help. 

Thank you for standing with us in the cause of Applied Christianity through your 
prayer and financial support. 

Sincerely, 
Joe S. Lennon, President 
Coy C. Privette, Executive Director

Home Mission Board Annual Report 

The Home Mission Board (HMB) is a missionary-sending agency of the Southern 
Baptist Convention (SBC). Headquartered in Atlanta, Ga., the HMB's purpose is 
to serve Southern Baptists by assisting churches to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, 
start and grow New Testament congregations, and minister to people in the name 
of Christ. 

At the end of last year, 4,868 missions personnel were serving in the United States, 
the Caribbean, American Samoa, and Canada. The HMB also had endorsed more 
than 2,200 chaplains who were serving in healthcare agencies, institutions, business- 
es, the military, and pastoral-care roles. More than 2,400 Mission Service Corps volun- 
teers were serving on home mission fields. During the year there were 367,847 baptisms 
and 1,281 church starts. 

Approximately half the HMB's support comes from individual SBC churches 
through the annual Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for Home Missions. In 1992, 
gifts to the offering totaled $37.61 miUion, up almost 6 percent from the 1991 total. 
One hundred percent of the offering goes to support the work of home missionaries 
in the field. The 1993 Annie Armstrong Easter Offering goal is $38 million. About 
36 percent of the HMB's income comes from the denomination's Cooperative 
Program. 

Home missions is a partnership of the HMB, state conventions, associations, and 
churches. The HMB's strategy is to help start churches, ministry endeavors, and evan- 
gelism efforts that will grow to self-support or be carried on by local churches or 
associations. 

The following is a summary of program/support ministry highlights from 1992: 
CHAPLAINCY MINISTRIES: The 2,293 Southern Baptists now serving as 

chaplains and pastoral counselors reported 24,000 professions of faith and 4,600 

baptisms. 

ALTERNATIVES TO ABORTION: Workers in 23 crisis pregnancy centers 
received training from the HMB. As a result of the ministry of these centers, 2,164 
babies were born and 832 women found faith in Christ. 

CHURCH LOANS : More than 1 , 1 00 churches had active loans totaling $ 1 1 5 mil- 
lion. These loans purchased, refinanced, remodeled, or constructed 106 buildings and 
purchased 9 building sites. 

LANGUAGE MISSIONS: Home missionaries and pastors in the Language 
Church Extension Division serve among 102 ethnic groups using 98 languages and 
dialects. 

PERSONAL EVANGELISM: During the Southern Baptist Convention in Indi- 
anapolis, 1,353 volunteers canvassed 45,235 residences, conducted a religious sur- 
vey, and shared the gospel with 2,905 individuals, 361 of whom made professions 
of faith. 

PRAYER AND SPIRITUAL AWAKENING: A national team began efforts to 
enhance effective prayer and revival ministries in churches. The Intercessory Prayer- 
line grew from 7,500 calls in 1985 to 130,000 last year. 

VOLUNTEERS: Over 71 ,000 Southern Baptist adults, college students and youth 
group members volunteered for long and short-term projects. More than 58,000 volun- 
teers responded to disaster relief efforts in Florida, Louisiana and Hawaii. 

SPECIAL MINISTRIES: Southern Baptists minister to seamen in 37 port cities 
and 200 missionaries are involved in ministries related to college students, resorts, 
special events, and diplomats.

North Carolina Baptist Foundation Report 

June, 1993 

The North Carolina Baptist Foundation works dihgently in service to Christ as 
directed by the agency's Mission Statement: 

*'The North Carolina Baptist Foundation is an agency of the Baptist State Con- 
vention of North CaroHna committed under the guidance of the Holy Spirit to serv- 
ing North Carolina Baptists and others in generating an increased awareness of 
Christian estate stewardship principals as a means of financially undergirding churches, 
institutions and mission endeavors on a permanent basis. 

And further, the Baptist Foundation Staff and Board of Directors are committed 
to being scrupulously moral, legal, efficient and accurate in carrying out the intent 
of each donor and trustor whose funds are placed under management of the Foun- 
dation as a means of sustaining a tangible and perpetual involvement in presenting 
the Gospel, meeting human needs and strengthening all bodies of Christian fellow- 
ship where Christ is the Head." 

The total market value of the assets of the Foundation at the end of 1992 was 
$41,880,638., an increase of almost $5.6 million over the end of 1991. Typically, as- 
sets are either held as endowments paying interest income in perpetuity to named 
Baptist causes, or they are held in trust with current income being paid to individuals 
and future income to be paid to Baptist causes in perpetuity. Additionally, the Foun- 
dation offers fund management for Baptist causes on a revocable basis.

mission causes during fiscal year 1992: $1,182,203. 

Earned income distributed and paid 
to individuals (with Baptist causes 
named as future beneficiaries) 

during the fiscal year 1992: $1,024,007. 

In 1992, and continuing into 1993, the Long Range Planning Committee of the 
Board of Directors met extensively to lay the groundwork for the Foundation's goals 
and objectives for the next five years. The previous five years were quite successful 
with ambitious financial goals being met early on. It is anticipated that the Board's 
work in evaluating the past and present status and in laying a road map for the fu- 
ture will result in exciting times ahead. 

The staff of the Foundation consists of seven full time employees and two persons 
who provide part-time service in accounting and legal services. The office is located 
in Gary next to the Baptist State Convention building. Visitors are welcome and are 
encouraged to stop by for professional assistance or just to say hello.

honor society recognition, was active in the community counseling drug abusers . . . and 
became a Christian at Mills Home. 

Kathy married a Christian young man who was a volunteer at Broyhill Home, where 
she lived. She continues her education at Haywood Technical College while working 
and becoming a young wife. She and her husband, Kris, are members at Woodland 
Baptist Church, where she was active in leading children's programs, even as a Broy- 
hill resident. 

Several rows of supportive staff members cried during the wedding when the 
minister asked, "Who gives this woman to be married?" Child care worker Jim John- 
son responded, "Her mother and I do." 

"Her mother," was Jim's wife, Vivian. Together, Jim and Vivian helped Kathy 
develop from an angry and withdrawn child, to a beautiful, confident, Christian 
leader. 

Ashley was growing up too fast. . .and her parents didn't know how to handle it. 
They wanted to treat her like a child; she wanted adult freedoms. When their con- 
stant clashing came to blows, they knew they needed help. 

Through the family clarification program at Mills Home, both Ashley and her par- 
ents learned the roles they played in the family conflict, and how to Usten, forgive 
and adjust in the future. 

"We're very grateful to Baptist Children's Homes," said Ashley's mother, Vic- 
toria. "I don't know what we would have done. I don't know what would have hap- 
pened to Ashley. I've had friends say to me, T never knew there was a place like that.'"

Well, there is a place like that. i 
Thank God. 

Baptist Children's Homes in 1992-93 served 1,453 children and their families 
through programs of intentionalized services at 13 facilities across North Carolina. 

Those facilities include four residential care campuses; seven emergency care homes; 
two homes for behaviorally troubled girls; therapeutic camping for boys; a materni- 
ty home; a home for teen-age mothers and their babies and a model daycare facility. 

Baptist churches, through the Thanksgiving Offering, Cooperative Program and 
direct gifts funded about one-third of BCH's $10 milHon budget. A significant source 
of income continues to be from estate gifts from those who remember children in 
their wills. 

BCH's model daycare service took a giant step June 27 when the new $1 million, 
10,000 sq. ft. Fleshman-Pratt Early Childhood Education Center was dedicated. It 
will accommodate 75 infants, toddlers and two-year olds. 

During dedication, Robin Britt, N.C. Secretary of the N.C. Department of Hu- 
man Resources, said BCH is "a true model of how young children can be shaped, 
nurtured and loved," and that "we will be looking at institutions like the Fleshman- 
Pratt Early Childhood Education Center as we find models to rephcate." 

T. Winfield Blackwell, president of the Fleshman-Pratt Foundation, whose lead 
gift started construction of the building, said, "Think how many children will be 
raised and shaped by the dedicated staff who serve here, and surely a goodly number 
will be developed, not only to be good citizens, but active ministers in God's service." 

Churches interested in beginning or improving their daycare ministry can get free 
help from director Mary Lou Dickey. Call (919) 472-3503. 

BCH also dedicated a counselor's lodge at Cameron Boys Camp; completed a stra- 
tegic planning cycle for the next three years; celebrated the 50th anniversary of Odum 
Home in Pembroke; completed a three-year partnership with the Baptist Children's 
Homes of Sao Paulo, Brazil; and produced a new video about BCH, available Aug. 15. 

Swelling with emotion at the dedication of her new building. Daycare Service Direc- 
tor Mary Lou Dickey promised, "we will not fail" those who trust BCH with their 
children. 

Michael C. Blackwell, who celebrated his 10th anniversary as president of BCH 
July 1, echoes that promise. "Baptist Children's Homes has been a cutting-edge minis- 
try for North CaroUna Baptists since 1885. As a disintegrating society moves the edges 
further and further, we're honing our ministry sharper and sharper. Thank you. North 
Carolina Baptists, for your support." 

Baptist Retirement Homes 

1993: THE BEST OF TIMES 

Did you know that: 

In 1993, North Carolina reached place number ten (10) among all the states in the 
United States in regard to the size of its adult population over the age of sixty-five (65). 

That one-half of all the people who have ever lived to be sixty-five (65) are now 
living. 

The fastest growing segment of North Carolina Baptist life is composed of those 
adults eighty-five (85) and older and that by the year 2000 that age category will dou- 
ble in size. 

-53- 



\ 



That by the year 1996 North CaroHna's "Baby Boomers" will be turning fifty-five 
(55) every 18 seconds. 

That by the year 2010 one out of every two people hving in North Carolina will 
be fifty (50) years of age or older? 

What do figures like those above mean for North Carolina Baptists? 

They point to the fact that one of the greatest needs facing our Convention as we 
move into the year 2000 is the provision of quality, affordable long-term care serv- 
ices to functionally impaired Older Adults through the expansion of existing long- 
term care facilities, and through the development of creative approaches to long-term 
care such as rural home health services, community day care programs, and respite 
programs for homebound care providers. 

In an attempt to meet the above mentioned need. Baptist Retirement Homes of 
North Carolina, Inc. in 1993: 

Opened the Rickman Nursing Care Center in Asheville, North CaroUna (a 100 bed 
Medicaid certified nursing care facility). 

The Rickman Center is a state-of-the-art long-term care facility that has been de- 
veloped to meet the needs of the poor elderly in Western North Carolina. (80% of 
the resident population will be recipients of benevolent funding). 

Renovated the Albemarle Baptist Home in Stanly Baptist Association and renamed 
it the Taylor House. The Taylor House has no financial requirements for admission 
and is designed to provide care to the assisted living level of care resident, regardless 
of his/her ability to pay for the long-term care services provided. 

Developed a new addition to the Brookridge Health Care Unit in Winston-Salem 
in order to provide an area for small group work with residents suffering from de- 
mentia. This state-of-the-art program will enable Baptist Retirement Homes' staff 
to improve the quality of life experienced by members of its resident community who 
are mentally impaired. 

Baptist Retirement Homes is keenly aware of the fact that without the support 
of North Carolina Baptists none of the above would have been possible. As a result 
of the prayers and funding that the "Homes" receives through the Cooperative Pro- 
gram and the North Carolina Offering For Older Adults, it has been able to offer 
hope to many Older Adults whose future would have been uncertain without the car- 
ing involvement of North Carolina Baptists. It is because of you that our institution 
has been able to make life for many Older Adults in 1993. . .The Best of Times. 

Thank you North CaroHna Baptists for your support! 

William B. Stillerman, President 
Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina, Inc. 

1993 N.C. Baptist Hospitals Report 

Founded in 1922, Baptist Hospital is a missionary enterprise of the Baptist churches 
of North Carolina. The essence of our purpose is to carry out a ministry of heahng 
as taught by Jesus Christ. We remain as fully committed to this mission as were our 
founding fathers. In the midst of changing health-care norms, we have not, nor will 
we, deviate from this mission. The following paragraphs report, not only basic facts, 
but various results of how we have sought in the last year to remain true to our heritage 
while providing quality health care at affordable prices. 
PROVIDERS AND RECIPIENTS OF HEALING 

Our heahng team now consists of 5,852 employees. The Medical Center (NCBH 



-54- 



and BGSM) personnel total employment is fast approaching 9,000 people making 
us the second largest employer in Forsyth County. In our 806-bed facility, we had 
23,247 inpatient admissions. Our Outpatient Department, physicians' clinics, and other 
related departments received 490,667 patient visits. 

Our chaplaincy division joined with our health-care professionals to provide spiritual 
and emotional healing. With 15-40 chaplains present at various times, 52,934 minis- 
tries were provided to patients, families, staff and groups. 

A new department of our Pastoral Care program named the Center for Congrega- 
tional Health was given birth. Its purpose is to (1) train Intentional Interim pastors; 
(2) train church leaders; (3) provide a minister's assessment program; (4) establish 
a Minister's Help Line providing an opportunity for church leaders to receive guidance 
via a telephone call. The Pastoral CounseHng Division opened a new counseling center 
in Wilmington bringing our total counseling centers to 1 1 across the state. The centers 
provided 16,205 counseling sessions. 

POINTS OF EXCELLENCE 

(1) The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations ranks Bap- 
tist Hospital in the top 9% of all hospitals in the nation. 

(2) We performed our first pancreas transplant and first double organ transplant 
(pancreas and kidney) this year. 

(3) We are one of only 26 comprehensive cancer care centers in the nation, treating 
more cancer patients than any hospital from Baltimore, Md. to Atlanta, OA. 

(4) Quality infant through adolescence care in our Brenner Children's Hospital. 

(5) Our neonatal transport team is the largest in North Carolina and one of the 
10 largest in the U.S. 

(6) Our Level I (highest awarded) Trauma Center has 2,100 admissions a year. 
SUPERB FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP 

In the midst of escalating health-care costs, we have a proven record of excellent 
stewardship. 

(1) The latest report of the North CaroHna Database Commission comparing hospi- 
tal major services charges vs. Baptist Hospital reveals, for our most frequent diagnoses: 

Duke 36% higher 

Carohna's Medical Center (Charlotte) - 36.5% higher 
UNC - Chapel Hill - 28% higher 
Average statewide - 9% higher 

(2) We are one of only 17 similar hospitals nationally with a "AA" bond credit 
rating. 

(3) Averaging the last two years and the projection for 1993, the Consumer Price 
Index will average 3.9% and the Medical CPI will average 9.7%. Baptist Hospital 
charge increases for the same period will average 3.3%, well under both the above 
mentioned indexes. 

EXPANSION FOR MEETING THE NEEDS OF THE FUTURE 
Nursing Center at Oak Summit 

Opening in July, this 170-bed facihty provides skilled and intermediate care. The 
center will be one of only a few in the state to provide care for ventilator-dependent 
patients. 

Emergency Department/Dietary 

Under construction at the present time to be completed by June 1995, this facility 
will total 750,000 square feet. Our current ER was designed to handle 29,000 pa- 
tients annually, but it is handling more than 40,000. Our new ER capacity will be 

-55- 



\ 



70,000 annually. This building will also house three floors of patient private rooms, 
our Pharmacy Department, and a 35-bed Day Hospital, new kitchen and cafeteria. 
J. Paul Sticht Center on Aging and Rehabihtation 

Construction on this facility begins in November of 1993 and is scheduled for com- 
pletion in January 1996. It will include geriatric care, research, and education; psy- 
chiatry; and also provide comprehensive acute rehabilitation services including 
nutrition assessment, physical, outpatient, speech, and recreational therapy. 
BAPTIST BENEVOLENT CARE FUND 

Last year Baptists across our state gave $422,000 to our annual Mother's Day Offer- 
ing. All of these monies went toward reUeving the financial burden of scores of former 
patients who have little or no health-care insurance and no financial means to pay 
their hospital bills. The churches and individuals help make this ministry possible 
and we are grateful. 

In conclusion, it is readily seen that this heahng ministry we share together says 
to our patients and their famihes: "We care about your health-care needs, your 
spiritual and emotional needs, and your financial burdens, and we express our car- 
ing through service."
